Posted on October 16, 2020 by


Covid-19 is the largest pandemic in years. This virus has infected 34.4 million people and killed over one million worldwide. Since January, the world has been dealing with the consequences of this outbreak. How do people stay safe, and where should they go to stay safe? Should students really be attending school?

School is one of the most public places in America, especially for kids. Are the regulations going to keep them safe?

This pandemic originated in China. Since January of 2020, the virus has spread throughout 70 locations internationally. 

Covid-19 has been known to cause severe illness, even leading to death. The elderly and people with health conditions such as heart disease, lung cancer, and diabetes are very much at risk.

Berks county has encountered 7,186 cases in the last 10 months, along with 395 deaths. Berks ranks seventh in the state of Pennsylvania, out of sixty-seven counties. 

School is generally a place to learn and socialize. Students are not going to be keen on social distancing, especially younger children who don’t know any better. It is not going to be an easy task to keep children and teens from socializing.
