  To go into this flying blind is ridiculous.  I feel terrible for our admin because they simply have no answers at all for our many questions.

Don't feel sorry for BC school admin.

I thought you might have been a kid from your postings a few years ago! (especially when you postings seemed to mature over time)

 

This might have actually confirmed that!

I grew up watching Ryan Gosling on Breaker High, lol.

Your administration should be on your side.

This may come as a shock to you, but the administration is bound by the terms of their contracts to carry out the lawful orders of the Ministry via the Board. It doesn't matter how an administrator feels or what he or she believes, they are required to follow orders. Administrators have not been part of the BCTF since January 1, 1988 when their status was changed to make them essentially managers. This made every job action since 1988 an incredibly tense time among school staffs. Often administrators were completely alone in the school for an eight hour day counting the holes in the acoustic tiles on the ceilings of their offices, while the teachers walked a line that nobody was ever interested in crossing.

There you go with your summary again:  "namely the lack of science on masks"?!?   I'm quite sure masks are not a mystery at this point.  Sure, some will misuse them but the reason most were suggesting not to (buy up the supply) was because they're "needed" in the health care sector.  If they're not effective, that wouldn't be the case.

 

Did you not consider that this (their words, not mine) factors in???

 

They also go on to say they don't criticize those using masks.  

This from the WHO'S recent advice on masks (bolded for you):

 

  1. Advice to decision makers on the use of masks for healthy people in community settings

    As described above, the wide use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not supported by current evidence and carries uncertainties and critical risks. WHO offers the following advice to decision makers so they apply a risk-based approach.

However, the following potential risks should be carefully taken into account in any decision-making process:

  • self-contamination that can occur by touching and reusing contaminated mask

  • depending on type of mask used, potential breathing difficulties

  • false sense of security, leading to potentially less adherence to other preventive measures such as physical distancing and hand hygiene

  • diversion of mask supplies and consequent shortage of mask for health care workers

  • diversion of resources from effective public health measures, such as hand hygiene

 

Here is the link.  It just repeats what is said in the video.   https://www.who.int/publications-detail/advice-on-the-use-of-masks-in-the-community-during-home-care-and-in-healthcare-settings-in-the-context-of-the-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)-outbreak

 

So you identified one reason for healthy people not wearing masks but missed the others.

 

There is a recent study in the Annals of Internal Medicine that raises important questions about mask effectiveness.  Just access the site and type in masks.

 

If healthy people want to wear masks that is their choice, if stores demand mask wearing, that is their choice.

Not supported and not recommended aren’t the same bud.

 

No evidence supported on wearing masks but highly recommended pretty much everywhere. 
 

Not to protect yourself; to protect others. 
 

Why is it so hard? Someone really, really hurt you didn’t they. 
 

Here’s a hug.

Middle managers. No real power and scared to ever speak out about what the kids in BC need. / deserve.    The new admin are hired on the basis of having no opinions  / no ideas and simply doing as they are told.  

So you collectively aim higher.

 

That IS. The basis of a union. 
 

L’union fait la force; union is strength.

 

Its not Communist; it’s from Winnipeg.

 

Well... a bit more history but you get the point.

 

Who is arranging a complete walkout?
 

Who isn’t scared to unite the people who are collectively and economically feeding this protection program? 

 

Who is making noise about all of this? When we have a serious concern, it is time to call phone numbers and rally the members nonstop. 
 

Someone has to do the job.

Oh stop, we have been quarantined for too long, the Queen is the worst, The Royal Family are suckers. Why do we still answer to England? I hate the Monarchy, the States were right lol, get that Independence.
 

Canada is Canada not England, stupid......

 

Sorry buds, The Queen is whack, just like those two stupid couples touring Canada,

At my kids elementary school, from what I gather/heard, it is about average 7 kids (that are going back for 2 half days of in-class sessions) per class/teacher.

We don’t answer to the Queen any longer. Not since 1982.

 

She’s merely a symbol that associates us with the Commonwealth; a bunch of ex British Empire territories and protectorates.
 

And frankly, I’ll take the Queen’s face on my money over an AR-15 and the dead body of my child.

 

But I don’t have children. So what do I know.

 

She came in at a time we needed her.

She delivered.
