Dear @AdrianaLaGrange and @jkenney Feeling more than a little frustrated about how Covid risks are being handled and prioritized. I will give you a couple examples:
For my mom’s birthday we can only have a table of 6, not 7, at a restaurant. NO room for negotiation. /1
Mandated by the government and restaurants must adhere. (We have no problem following these rules though as they are in place to keep people safe and allow businesses to remain open. We made alternate plans) /2
People are ready to lynch large groups for having get togethers and consequently causing outbreaks that endanger the rest of the population. (I feel the same way as it’s selfish and reckless to knowingly endanger the rest of the population and potentially cause a complete shut /3
down again that will devastate the economy and kill our most vulnerable among others?)
Damage is done to vehicles for travelling to areas outside their home zone and some people are less than hospitable to these visitors without knowing their reasons for being there. /4.
Likely driven by fear as they are worried that more people and crowded places means a greater risk.)

Here’s where the hypocrisy comes in. Governments (specifically Alberta government being the worst) are soon going to be willingly putting children, young adults, and teachers /5
in these same crowded situations everyday for 5 hours a day. In closed quarters with poor ventilation. With 20 - 40 people each room. With inadequate staff for cleaning, and masks are optional. There is no room for social distancing, no budget for additional cleaning staff... /6
the list goes on. Even in ‘cohorts’ these kids will all go home to subject family members, who then go to work and subject others, and this is okay?
Why do people support and demand the control measures for the first examples but look the other way when it comes to kids? /7
For parents that can afford it they will homeschool. For wealthier parents they will go to private schools that have funding for smaller class sizes, adequate infrastructure and staffing. What does the rest of the population do?
It just doesn’t make any sense to me. /8
Unroll please. @threadreaderapp
