Keep schools closed until Covid 19 is no longer a threat

Petition Details

The threat of covid19 is real. Children can’t be expected to maintain sufficient social distancing to keep this virus from spreading. They are social creatures. Allowing them back to school could cause a new spike in cases. They could bring it back home, even if they are a-symptomatic.

Additional Information

Maintain school closures for the foreseeable future. Do not risk our children becoming carriers of the disease that we have sacrificed our freedom, and more importantly, our lives to beat. Until transmission rates have reduced to a level where the life, health, and economy can be ensured, instate methods to keep children safe, stop the spread, stay home, protect the NHS, protect us all and save lives.
