so far they don't appear to be. 

Glad I'm not a breeder. Putting them back in school is not a decision I would want to make for my kids and fam. Up to what age is the reduced transmission? Is this  mostly an adult virus? 

 

I have a couple family members in the school system. They are concerned.

I keep hearing more and more stories. Today was a friend stating his sons Lacrosse academy has an exposure, so the group may have to be tested. 

 

Also, why is AB switching their 7-12 to home schooling on Nov 30?

Almost 10% of a school infected in less than two weeks. Too bad Ontario doesn’t have the magic “school force field” that BC has. 

Our cases, as a province, aren’t as high as theirs.

We have 5 mil people, 9847 cases in the last 14 days.

Ont has 14.5 mil people, 19763 cases in the last 14 days.

 

So, percentage wise, that doesn't look very good. They are almost 3 times our size yet only have twice as many cases in the last 14 days.

My point wasn’t about provincial cases, it’s just a case study on how one teacher came in sick and it spiralled out of control quickly.

Believe it or not, BC is doing better than Ontario.

That's what the sentiment seems to be.

 

However those 14 day numbers don't look good, do they?

The 14 day trend of the second wave certainly doesn’t look ‘good’ for most places.

That's kinda like a EC vs PR statement. 

Don't want to gerrymander the impact of the virus now. 

The second wave is upon us. No hiding from that reality no matter how  one looks at the numbers.

That is starting to change though still true for the most part.

LHSC (London's main hospital) is starting to get into a lot of issues with coronavirus outbreak.

 

Peel, GTA, Ottawa, and the more populous regions of Southern Ontario aren't doing great.  We have a total of 200~ total cases where I live.  It's not that bad considering this region has around 200k people living in it.
