Yeah my fiancee is a special education teacher. It sucks for teachers (speaking as a former teacher as well). She works with elementary students with special needs, so it's almost impossible for them to adhere to any distancing or use of protective equipment. She wears a mask, face shield, and gloves, but it still sucks.

Speaking as a high school teacher, once they come back (rumored to be going back to full in-person classes in November) it's going to be a mess. I loved my students, but there's no way you can expect high school kids to adhere to social distancing and consistent mask usage. Hell, you couldn't get them to put their IDs on, nevermind wearing masks. I'm glad last year was my final year of teaching. I had 30+ kids packed into a small room for 7 hours a day. It's going to spread like crazy in schools.

Dude, my HS students have been AWESOME about thr masks and hand sanitizer. Social distancing.... sort of. My district is switching from hybrid to full distance next week. I'm disappointed because I'm having a great time with the kids in my classes. My digital only students so far have been hit or miss.

2nd son's test just came back negative, too. Whew.

Is there any data that shows a restaurant curfew actually works? As opposed to closing them with financial support from the goverment? 10 PM was just imposed here in New York and seems entirely arbitrary, backtracking from last week when the governor/mayor allowed for outdoor seating throughout the winter. Major costs have already been incurred setting up heating and infrastructure for that to actually happen. The service industry in the city is already fucked and this isn't going to help...

I assumed it was to prevent people from hanging out and getting drunk. Basically shuts down bars in young areas where idiot 22 year olds would still go out like this didn't exist. But at the same time still allows them to serve food.

Honestly I thought it was because the later places stay open, the more chance shitty people/shitty places allow more crowds in true bar atmosphere, and as people would drink more the less restrictions will be followed.

I've maintained that all restaurant/bar restrictions are due to the stupid 5% of places that ruin it for everyone else. Your run of the mill restaurant is probably following rules and has no reason to close by 9 pm.

I mean, this seems to be the surface argument but that doesn't account for the thousands this will affect here in New York without a viable stimulus or even eviction protection.

I hear ya, but letting Coivd run rampant when we have no idea when or if that's coming doesn't sound like a great idea either.

I can’t wait for covid vaccines because apparently humans can’t make rational choices that involve more than three layers of a decision tree.

Holistic solutions are anathema to American culture.

Ducey has gone silent as AZ climbs again

I wonder if it's the snowbirds, or the trump rallys, or just normal spread due to laxed rules

Hands down the dumbest measure in NY/NJ has to be “all gyms must close by 10pm”

Someone explain the logic there

because they have to allow places to open so they don't go under, since the federal government isn't bailing any business out or giving out stimulus checks.

local officials have to let things stay open or their economy is going to die.

There's shit going around on facebook/twitter here that Illinois is the only state in the country that has completely banned indoor dining. Is that true? I guess most cities and parts of states have done it but was surprised at that.

I haven’t looked but didn’t lightfood effectuate it again before JB? I’d hope they’re not the only state right now. So much for the Midwest governors being the same page
