Gwinnett County, home of Georgia's LARGEST school district has had 260 employees that have either tested positive for COVID-19 or been exposed to COVID-19:
GCSD already had pushed the start date back to August 12, but had given the option for in-person learning until late July when the decision to only provide virtual learning was "due to the current Covid-19 situation in our county and the rising numbers of cases in Gwinnett County," Roach explained.
With online learning keeping students safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of parents are taking it to the streets to protest the decision to go all online for the 2020-2021 school year:
Despite the high case count and the confirmed community spread, some parents held a protest last week demanding that children be allowed to return to in-person learning.
As schools begin to reopen, we should send a word of advice from Gwinnett County School District Spokeswoman Sloan Roach:
"Given the number of COVID cases in Gwinnett we would expect to see positives among our employees based on the community spread in our county," Roach said.
Seeing the increases of COVID-19 all around the nation, it's imperative that schools take this virus seriously. The more cases, the more students and staff are being put into situations of danger. It's a recipe for a disaster.
