This is part of the scientific data Metrics that our local elementary school district (MVWSD) Mountain View Whisman uses to determine when their health protocol requires Mandatory Masking. This is just one Metric. My understanding is it applies to the whole District / all sites. If a specific site / or classroom / has a measured problem (different Metrics) then that particular site / or classroom / will go back into 'mask wearing'. (Covid is a repertory virus)

- Learning - also involves students learning how to adjust their lives and actions to the best data and protocols for Public Health. (parents - please teach your own kids How To Wear Seatbelts when riding in a car or truck). Make sense? Use sensible Science.

I am so confused.

We are hardly safe regarding covid, we still have serious numbers in hospitalizations in Santa Clara County, if you read this website Web Link

WE still have a 7 day average of 225 confirmed cases and 23 suspected cases, thus a daily average of 248. That means in a week we have 1700 people hospitalized. Since the County has 1,900,000 we have nearly .1% hospitalization a week, and this has been going for at least 2 months.

And I know that most businesses are NOT reporting Covid cases, and telling workers to not report them either

Face it we still haven't seen what BA 2.75 and BA.4.6 are going to do in the next 4 weeks. They will be maturing while we are still considering the so called Omicron B.5 variant vaccine

I agree with hope for the best, but it mist also be matched with prepare for the worst. I am going to update my current statistics regarding cases and positivity tonight
