. I couldn’t help but watch the press conference in complete dismay at your logic on handling COVID-19. The facts are this, this virus has already proven to overwhelm several medical systems. Their cases started the same way we see it here today; numbers in the hundreds and “low” death rates. We have a very small window of opportunity here to learn from their mistakes and close that gap. 

Science seems to prove that social school closures are one of the most (if not the most) efficient way to stop the spread of this virus.  Hundreds of kids are in schools, sitting closely and sharing surfaces. There is no cleaning protocol that can keep up with this kind of close contact. 
School districts around the country are closing. Let’s join in and be proactive. An ounce  of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you’re banning gatherings of more than 1000 people and discouraging gatherings of 250 or more than why not schools who have more than both numbers?
