Not that I want anyone’s kid to get sick, but… maybe if their kids started getting sick, people who have been pooh-poohing masks and insisting having schools open is fine would finally start to &^!%ing take this seriously?

As someone who was hoping to send my kid back in a month I have no room for that sentiment. There’s nothing to teach them, they know what they’re doing. People who still refuse to wear a mask after 14 months know what they’re doing.
