Teacher Shares Her Doctor’s Harrowing Survival Advice as Schools Set to Reopen This Fall

Because teachers didn’t have enough on their plates already, we’re essentially sending these underpaid heroes into a war zone, hoping they make it out alive.

“She was livid and so was I that she had to advise me in this manner,” Abby wrote of her conversation with the doctor.

Her thread was met with hundreds of comments from fellow teachers who shared similar advice from their own doctors.

Many also pointed out how difficult it will be for teachers to get their hands on N95 masks, as many doctors and nurses working the front lines of the pandemic haven’t even had access to ample personal protective equipment (PPE).

Abby said her doctor’s recommendations were based off of her knowledge of Abby’s low-risk health, and working in a high school building with 1600+ students, and 200+ faculty and staff.

According to the New York Times, a new study of nearly 65,000 people in South Korea found that children between the ages of 10 and 19 can spread the coronavirus just as much as adults. The findings suggest that school reopenings will trigger more outbreaks.

Still, the U.S. is moving full speed ahead with many districts across the nation planning on reopening schools as usual this fall with social distancing measures in place.
