Sandie Wold started this petition to Gwinnett County Public Schools

Many parents, students and teachers are looking forward to returning to in-person instruction this Fall 2020.  However, the Gwinnett County Public School system (GCPS) does not feel the need to require testing to all employees and students that are returning to school in person.  This decision is disastrous.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  All it takes is ONE infected individual to shut down an entire school and infect many, many more.  Many individuals have very minor symptoms or are completely asymptomatic and are still able to spread the virus.  Testing is the ONE thing that we can all do to give us all the BEST chances to be safe returning to school.  This petition is not debating whether it is better to return to school in-person or digitally.  It is meant to urge GCPS to REQUIRE testing for an ACTIVE covid-19 infection (PCR based testing, not antibody testing) before any employees or students return to school in person. A safe, healthy environment is essential for every student, teacher and parent.
