Kids touch everything and everyone they come in contact with. They'll be taking it from adults to one another to other adults with their grubby little hands.
Iv'e seen this at events, signs that say "Do not touch" mean nothing if that prop worth a few grand looks like a giant toy to them.

A lot of kids aren't that safe either, by nature of what it attacks asthma sufferers are high risk and its a condition common in Children, my little Sister suffered with it growing up and even coming into contact with a kid with a mild cold could mean symptoms so bad she could be out weeks and even need an emergancey hospital visit.

Yes education is massivley important but needs to be handled carefully.

I get what people are saying about kids touching things, but some adults are hardly better. See it every day, touching products they have no intention of buying despite being told not to. And that's among other things.

Yeah I see that a lot, it's probably from subconciously doing it, only thing is even in transit theres a risk of it so general rule of thumb is if you are concerned just give the packaging a wipe with an antibactirial cloth when you get home.

Shortly after this started I saw a bloke doing that with almost everything he was about to pick up, but not with a wipe, but with spray,
Spraying loafs of bread.

Doesn't the issuing of fines remain at the headteachers discretion? I can't see many adopting a hard line stance, though a few may do.
No, it was spelled out in the official guidelines for how schools will reopen in September, parents who keep their children at home WILL be fined.

Pertinent example. Our village school had Year 1 pupils go back last week. They were split into two "bubbles". At playtime the Year 1 pupils went out into the playground - and started playing a massive game of tag,mixing up the two bubbles.

Find it amusing some of the papers moaning about drinkers being too close and it being a shambles yet it’s okay for people to do protests without distancing. Same for Leicester. All these dodgy sweatshops paying pittance yet they’re still open and the council or police don’t do anything

In an ideal world we would still have lots of businesses shut and everyone indoors but you just can’t continue like that

Bubonic plague anyone?
Bubonic plague is actually easier to treat than COVID-19 with modern antibiotics. It's never been completely eradicated.

Covid is a virus, bubonic plague is bacterial so Anti-biotics can treat it pretty well. It still kills people especially those in 3rd world countries that lack the ab's and health care but back when it killed 50 million, they didn't realize it was coming from fleas etc. Thought it was the air and thus those creepy bird masks were uses which had flowers and what not inside the nose. They also used to cut themselves to bleed out... yea not the best idea but it seemed to make them feel less infecty lol. It's actually a really interesting historic event with a ton of documentaries about it around.

I haven't acctually managed to get a face mask yet, I've got a hankerchief to improvise with in my pocket but because I rarely leave the house now I've not got the real deal.
Ideally I'd like to get one of those washable jobbies with a skull or something so atleast I can enjoy part of wearing it.
