    Great idea – cancel education altogether. The dumber a population is the easier they are to control and brainwash. I am keeping up with news reporting in Europe on the Virus. Insanity – the military tracking contacts, they already had a complete lockdown In the Spring and still havoc again . Either the masks work or they don’t ! If they work as we are told, why does it matter who is positive and who is not as long as the individual is symptom free and going about his business. Others are protected if everybody wears a mask- right? Please don’t bring Trump or Biden into this in your comments – it’s not a political argument
