CDC Will Not Revise School Opening Guidelines

Source: Political Wire

Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that the guidelines for reopening schools will not be revised, CNN reports.

Said Redfield: “Our guidelines are our guidelines, but we are going to provide additional reference documents to aid basically communities that are trying to open K-through-12s. It’s not a revision of the guidelines; it’s just to provide additional information to help schools be able to use the guidance we put forward.”

CDC will not revise guidelines for schools reopening despite Trump criticism

10 min ago
From CNN's Naomi Thomas, Betsy Klein and Kevin Liptak

Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that the guidelines for reopening schools will not be revised, but additional reference documents will be provided.

“Our guidelines are our guidelines, but we are going to provide additional reference documents to aid basically communities that are trying to open K-through-12s,” Redfield said on Good Morning America Thursday. “It’s not a revision of the guidelines; it’s just to provide additional information to help schools be able to use the guidance we put forward.”


In response to comments about the guidelines being too tough or impractical, Redfield said this depends on how the guidelines are put together. “Right now, we’re continuing to work with the local jurisdictions to how they want to take the portfolio of guidance that we’ve given to make them practical for their schools to reopen,” he said.

Redfield described the guidelines as “intentionally non-prescriptive,” and said that the range of guidelines given were to offer schools the option of what will work best for them. Redfield said the CDC would work with any local jurisdiction on how best to use the guidelines to reopen their schools in the safest way, and that it would “personally sadden” him if people were to use the guidelines and concerns about them as a reason to stay closed. “It’s a critical public health initiative right now to get these schools reopened and to do it safely,” Redfield said.

5. Not necessarily.

We’ll have to see. It’s possible that it’s more detail, not just letting Dolt45 revise in sharpie.

9. You and me both.

In this one instance I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt because the stakes are so high that any remotely sane and competent public health expert couldn’t just say “Yeah, sure, whatever.”

3. Excellent.

It’s about time that an agency stood up to Hair Hitler.

This is too important to let politics supersede public health. We could easily cause a massive outbreak of cases by carelessly reopening schools.

“...just to provide additional information to help schools be able to use the guidance we put forward..”

Trumpian Speak = We are changing the guidelines

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

11. Russia is going to be disappointed in Trump and Republicans

for failing to force the CDC to endanger more Americans by following the Republican directives to make our kids sick.

Sad.

12. I just don't think there'll be a lot of learning going on this school year

Social distancing and fear.

Home study with weekly or bi-monthly in-school days? Yeah, few would do the work. But what an opportunity to teach kids self-discipline.

I think we have to innovate, think outside the box.

16. There will be zero learning, I'm afraid, except by kids who like learning and books in

general. And have a parent who is enthusiastic about learning as well.

21. And have no special learning needs.

In my province they’re likely going to let any kid who is a “vulnerable learner”, so any kids with IEPs, come full time.

13. This reminds me of Seinfeld episode where Elaine is claiming her phone number isn't different.

"No, it's just like 212 except they multiplied every number by 3… and added 1 to the middle number."

14. We are being gaslighted.

This doublespeak from DJT, the elf on the shelf, and Redfield intends to sow confusion and self-doubt.

They will do whatever they do.

And we will do what we need to do.

18. Trump is slowly finding himself

on a lonely island. If he tries to keep up the opposite-world response to Covid-19, I think he is going to get Baker Acted or forced to resign. You can almost see this coming with all the generals and former staffers coming out that he's unfit, with now six GOP Senators saying they are skipping the convention, Fox News reporting on the pandemic more correctly..... seriously, we are probably nearing the end. The GOP should have Kasic and Haley on the line right now.

The courts and now this. We won quite a bit today and so did our Supreme Court...no court can be considered to be in the pocket of the right or the left or they will cease to function. K&R
