Because with masks, there is still some transmission of infections, just not enough for the numbers to go up.  Like, if with no masks a sick person could infect two people and those two people go on to infect four people... pretty soon you have a whole bunch of people.   But if there are 8 sick people and they wear masks so there is only a 50 50 chance they infect someone else, then there will only be 4 new cases, then 2 then 1 and then maybe another one or none at all.   

Whether that would really work, and whether folks in places where there aren't many cases would go along with that is hard to know.   There is a lot of "It can't happen here" going on.   I see it every day.

also betting there are alot of nervous parents and teachers today awiating what our gov timmy putin has to say about the upcoming school year!!!!! :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

its amazing how split the teachers are. my cousin is a teacher down in the big city, Blaine i believe and she is pretty adamant kids need to get back to the classroom. she thinks the kids didnt do any of the work or very little, she cant see if they are doing any of the school work, had no way to test if they did but she was expected to give grades...........and of course passing grades.

our sources are telling us WALZ is simply listening to the nurses and teachers in his guidance through this.

and i wont even get into it about the Minneapolis mayor!!!!!!!! :crazy: :crazy: :doofus: :doofus: :confused: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Most of the teachers I know have said the same thing, that the kids need the classroom environment. Easier for the teachers to monitor the kid's progress or lack thereof & get it corrected. About the only ones I know against going back are the staunch teachers union types. Some of those were a problem before COVID ever reared its ugly head anyway.  :confused: Yes glenn, your buddy the boy mayor has seen fit to put his foot down on Mpls. bar owners. This oughta be fun. I hope they don't make him cry again.  :bonk:

We have both been out since getting back home & no masks mandate down here. Brother went to get groceries & they were giving mask away in the entrance if you wanted 1. I went to the bank & they did have a sign up asking everyone entering to wear 1 so I put mine on. I didn't see any customers in there who weren't wearing 1, all the employess were behind plexiglass barriers & some of them had masks on too.

I have been using one of my bandannas and I think it's as good as many of the home made one's for sure...  I hate that elastic behind my ears...  most people were wearing them today too..

Then there's the glasses factor. I'm used to wearing a dust mask going into corn fields this time of year if they're pollinating. I'm always damn glad to get the thing off once I'm out of there too. Fog up my glasses and if your face wasn't sweating before you went in, it is by the time you come back out. Not only do these blue surgical masks everyone is wearing fog your glasses, they get snarled up with the bows when trying to get the mask off. Now I see Fauci is advising wearing face shields or goggles. Enough is too much.  :bonk:

Well it actually makes more sense to leave it to the districts. He has been accused of adopting one size fits all rules when he makes mandates for the whole state. Perhaps some of the districts in outstate MN have different factors to consider than in districts with higher covid rates.

You are right on the money roony. For starters our internet capabilities alone lag significantly vs. the urban areas here in much of outstate & vary within the areas themselves. This district is no exception. Parents are very much in favor of local control. Besides, for the kids it's  lots more fun to ride 4 wheeler or a quad outside than listen to Mr. or Ms. Yakkety Yak drone on in the house...:rolleyes:

  :reporter;  Breaking News.... Herman Cain, dies at 74   

  Herman Cain, Former Presidential Candidate, Dies at 74

Herman Cain, who rose from poverty in the segregated South to become chief executive of a successful pizza chain and then thrust himself into the national spotlight by seeking the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has died at 74.

His death was announced on Thursday on his website and in social media accounts. No other details were provided. He had been hospitalized this month in the Atlanta area with the novel coronavirus after testing positive for it on June 29.

Did he/they say anything about charter schools?  What are the rules for those?

Are they tied to any particular district and do charters have to do what the district does, or are they completely independent?

I agree the local control thing is fine. But all the rules and stipulations by the state don't make it as rosy as it looks at face value. For instance, schools in those counties with the meat packing plant debacles are going to be restricted even though they may be far from the area where the problems occurred. Still some "one size fits all" to it.
