Photos Of Reopened Schools In Georgia Show Kids Without Masks In Crowded Hallways

The end of the summer and the beginning of the school year is the most disappointing time for many young people, but this year is… special? (for a lack of a better word) The whole world is still battling with the coronavirus pandemic, but the U.S., the worst-hit country in the world, has decided to reopen the schools. Photos of reopened public schools in Georgia have since emerged on the internet, and they show how “all of the students wear their face masks”, and “how all of them are trying to socially distance from one another”.

The photos that came out of one school in Georgia showed a packed hallway with dozens of students, which makes social distancing impossible. To add to that, most of the kids were not wearing face masks.

Although we’re nowhere near the end of the epidemic, the Trump administration has been pushing for the reopening of the public schools for the upcoming school year. Many school districts tried to reassure the public by promising safety measures, such as social distancing and mandatory face masks, but the photos show otherwise.

The photo came from Paulding County, and it’s not the only Georgia school being called out. People started sharing photos from other Georgia schools, and we’re genuinely terrified by them.

In other news, 260 employees across a single Georgia school district have tested positive for Covid-19.

The district superintendent, Brian Otott, tried to calm the situation by sending out a message to parents that class changes that look like the one in the photo might happen, especially at a high school with more than 2,000 students, and there was little the district could do beyond encouraging masks.

Georgia’s Department of Education and Georgia Department of Public Health decided to reopen the schools with “guidelines, not mandates”, encouraging students to wear masks and follow other safety precautions, but don’t force them to do anything. Most people, though, seem unhappy with the decision, and the end results may be catastrophic.
