De Blasio Shutters In Person Learning at NYC Schools

New York City Government Schools with 0.18 Percent Random Coronavirus Tests Positive Rate Are Shutting Down In-person Classes

How absurd can the coronavirus panic become? Let the New York City government school system illustrate. Despite a random testing of school system students and teachers finding only 0.18 percent testing positive for coronavirus (a miniscule amount likely even inflated with false positive results), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to use a supposed major coronavirus threat as an excuse for shutting down in-person classes throughout the New York City school system.

Matt Welch relates the absurd details at Reason.

Even when case numbers are incredibly low — a supposed key goal of coronavirus crackdowns across America, governments can still freak out and demand people make more and more changes in their lives. The game is rigged.

An in-person classes option in the school system had only begun starting back up in late September.

On the bright side, at least students engaged in “virtual” classes will be free from mask wearing, “social distancing,” and other oppressive requirements imposed in the name of countering coronavirus — requirements that some students have been rebelling against.
