    if retailers are allowed to operate, schools should be, too.

    The risk of children getting sick is “extremely, extremely low,” DeSantis said, and if fast food eateries and hardware stores could operate as “essential” businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, then schools should reopen as well.

    “We spent months saying that there were certain things that were essential,” DeSantis told reporters in Jacksonville. “That included fast food restaurants. It included Walmart. It included Home Depot.”

    “But if all that is essential, then educating our kids is absolutely essential,” he said. “They have been put to the back of the line in some respects.”

    It's all political here by the left. It's not election season in Europe; they're open..................

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    Funny how the left all of the sudden do not want to be like Europe. Europe and Scandinavia understand the science that the left in this country love to say they do. And do not.

    Oh, well, I guess he's got a point there. Walmart normally packs 38 people in a 40' x40' enclosed space with an aged ventilation system for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, so why SHOULDN'T schools open up?

    Later on, DeSantis will explain how one can stand on nothing at all by first lifting one leg up off the ground and then doing the same thing with the other.

    Aged ventilation system? Obviously you have not seen how much money has been spent on schools the last 15 years or so. Guess you do not pay property taxes that pay for that. Even though the schools are modern day Architectual wonders, that did not improve the quality of the union led public education. Kids are still coming out dumb as shit.

    My kids have finished school, got the checks to prove it, but I don't think many parents are going to be in any hurry to send their kids to schools because Walmart being open supposedly shows that it is safe, especially when the opinion is coming from a guy who is downplaying the virus while his State keeps setting new daily records

    Ah, it was Desantis who opened fast food restaurants, Walmart, Home Depot, along with bars, restaurants, beaches, and gyms, and we have all seen the consequences of that move, so now you are buying his opinion that he knows what is safe, especially for kids?

    Worried about the air quality in schools, or even your home? Install one of these in the ductwork. It's variously called a electro-static precipitator or electronic air cleaner. At a school it'd take somewhere between 10 and 20 to do the entire building properly.



    That model sells for about $500 and it takes everything down to including viruses out of the air. Easy to clean (remove the grids and use soap and water, dry, reinstall) and very efficient. So, you could do a school for about $30,000 to $40,000 max and most of the viral threat goes away.

    Numbers in Europe for the most part have stabilized, not so in America, hadn't you noticed we lead the world in cases and have been barred from traveling to Europe cause of our inappropriate response to the virus

    Hey, it was your man Trump who made opening schools political, few in America are against it, however what most want is a safe way of doing it, unlike Trump who treats it like it is just opening Walmart

    This version is "plug and play" mounts on the ceiling. One per classroom and you're problem of social distancing is solved.

    Oh, just for clarity. I've installed dozens of those in various models mostly in commercial settings. Did one manufacturing plant where I put like 15 in. They went from an annual cold and flu season among the employees, along with other air quality related problems to nada. Those things work great. Bars used to use them to get rid of cigarette smoke.
