Funding for ventilation in all school/college/uni classrooms
As a parent, it has become of increasing concern that the Government has not yet committed to funding increased ventilation in classrooms, in the form of approved HEPA air filter systems/air purifiers.This petition is to ask the Government to immediately fund these in schools/colleges/unis.
It is now a widely accepted fact that Covid-19 is airborne, which means the risk to children in indoor, poorly ventilated classrooms is immense.
If children are infected they have a lower risk of Covid BUT still a risk nonetheless. Teachers also face risk to health and indeed life through teaching face to face and it should be noted that some who have been double vaccinated are still catching Covid and becoming ill.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
