“We will now go to weekly testing. We’ll be testing in elementary, middle, and high school each school every week,” de Blasio said. “That will allow more kids to safely remain in the classrooms.”
The policy follows a push from the United Federation of Teachers, which demanded changes. The president of the teachers’ union wrote in a letter, “While so far our public schools have successfully reopened, I am concerned that this year’s reduced frequency of Covid testing means that thousands of children will spend days in classrooms without the early warning system that last year made our schools among the safest places in the community.”
“It’s time for people to see vaccination as literally necessary to living a good and full and healthy life,” de Blasio said last month as he announced the “Key to NYC Pass.”
Translation: those who choose to remain unvaccinated because they resist being coerced into taking an experimental drug in response to a politically-weaponized, manufactured pandemic, will not be allowed to live a good, full life in the totalitarian de Blasio’s city.
