LIVE UPDATES Updated just now Coronavirus Live Updates: C.D.C. to Revise Guidelines for Reopening Sc

Source: New York Times

Hours after President Trump assailed guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for reopening schools, Vice President Mike Pence, appearing with the White House coronavirus task force, announced the agency would issue new recommendations next week, saying they don't want the guidance to be a reason why schools don't open.

"Well, the president said today, we just don't want the guidance to be too tough," Mr. Pence said. "That's the reason why next week, the C.D.C. is going to be issuing a new set of tools, five different documents that will be giving even more clarity on the guidance going forward."

Mr. Trump openly rebuffed the C.D.C. on Twitter Wednesday morning, assailing current guidelines issued by the agency recommending a slew of preventive measures necessary to bring the nation's children back to class. And he threatened to cut off federal aid to schools that refuse to fully reopen this fall.

3. LOL. They will now have to be referred to as "guidelines" (i.e., not real guidelines)

5. If you are at CDC, RESIGN today.

If you ever cared about science, data and enlightened thinking, start campaigning like a madman to unseat EVERY republican you can.

The CDC is dead. We are leaving the WHO. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORST VIRAL OUTBREAK AND PANDEMIC IN A CENTURY...

Jesus fucking Christ crucified...Trump and everyone of his GOP enablers and cowardly 'fans' deserve to watch whomever they love most in the world die of COVID in isolation and alone. Let them stand there and WATCH their loved one gasp for breath, cry and shake in fear and isolation, and die utterly alone and cut off from humanity in their final moments outside of a cold, digital image on a phone screen.

The CDC guideline documents LEAKED!!!!

1) See no virus
2) Hear no virus
3) Speak no virus
4) Hail to the Dear Leader
5) 2 + 2 = 5

6. They pretty much own the place now. They are rancid as Steve Schmidt stated so well. Death and

destruction is their party label.

7. He's really going to hurt kids in red states

Seriously - I'm in NJ.


Proceed Mr. Trump - and watch us not blink - since we fund our children's education through property taxes.

8. This is so fucking stupid!

This sentences teachers to death. Kids are NOT immune and they are going to be bringing shit home to at risk parents. You can't properly social distance in schools. And so many parents are fighting mask mandates.

I live in PA and that is supposed to make me feel more at ease, but we have a Republican legislature that is hell bent on undoing any of Wolf's work.

10. Killing public school teachers is the objective.

1) Most public school teachers vote Democratic.
2) Killing public school teachers makes it easier to kill the public school system, something the GOP has been trying to do for years.
3) DeVos was nominated and confirmed to destroy public education.

11. Where is the most reliable source of information?

I already knew it wasn’t theCDC at this time.

So what is? John Hopkins? NIH? Blue state governments information sites?

12. Might be time for a radical change to the education system.

Maybe focus more on remote teaching say for older students say of age 10 to 12+ at home via tablets.
With younger ones still in the schools but spread out more so as to reduce the spread of viruses in the future.

13. Of course the schools can reopen -- just test everyone who sets foot in it

and their immediate families.

14. Dr. Oz said our children should go back to school because only 2-3% of them would die.

Pick any two out of each hundred that you are ok with dying.

16. But wait -- there's more.

While only 2-3% of them would die, 100 per cent of them could spread the disease to others.

Why is mass testing of the students, teachers, staff and their households not an option?

15. The VIRUS is the reason why schools shouldn't open

18. The federal government accounts for 8% of total school budgets.

The poorest states get a much higher percentage. This will hurt his people the most.

19. I understand wanting kids in school...

so their parents will be able to work, but that doesn't seem like the reason for this push. The Republicans really don't like public school system. I wonder if they've gamed this somehow to get certain results. Why do I try to make sense of this crap?
