I double checked and this is legitimate, in case you were wondering.
It’s also crazy given that less than ten percent of all COVID cases have been found among students aged 5–17 years, according to the CDC. COVID is primarily an adult disease, especially with regard to older adults.
I’m all for social distancing if possible, but this seems like overkill to me.
Here’s some responses from the Twitterverse:
