His 14-year-old son contracted Kovid-19 at Summer Camp, even though both he and the camp were cautious, Jack Davis said.
“It’s scary, because the camp, they take all the precautions they can,” Jack Davis said. “And now we’re just about getting all our kids back to school.”
“They are going to open Floodgates widely,” said Amber Davies.
“And there is no way to trace (contact). Once the children move from one class to the next, to the next class, they cannot do the tracing.”
Across America, countless parents are saddled with anxiety – for varying reasons.
For Davis, both his 14-year-old and 8-year-old sons will not be able to attend school on Friday due to the older son’s infection.
“they are doing Amber Davis said, “It’s going to be a late start, but when we get medically clean, they’re gonna go back.”
But both parents are worried about what will happen when their sons go back to school.
Amber Davis suffers from Lupus disease and is at high risk for serious complications from Kovid-19. She is trying to stay in a separate room after her elder son’s infection, but her husband is worried about the younger son being infected at school.
“My biggest concern is that he catches something and then brings it back to my wife,” Jack Davis said.
“I think our kids are going to be alright. They’ll bounce back. But someone with lupus – it’s a tough fight for him. A common cold for me and you, we’re probably down two days. Something like that. Hee is him. We’ve been watching for weeks and it’s scary. “
Across town, Ray Lynn and Pete Fuller also want to keep their two children home.
“We would love to have our children back to normal, but not a normal time right now,” Fuller said.
“And looking at the data in the area, what they are doing right now with infection rates, there is no way we can see that they can not only keep children safe, but all employees, adults (safe) . “
Those families were asked to contact the Special Education Department to discuss possible options.
Ray Lynn Fuller jumped at that opportunity and planned to keep his children virtually learning.
“I’m a nurse, and I work with the elderly – so I contacted them and said that my child is not with special circumstances, but I am,” she said. “And I would choose an alternative method than in-person learning.”
Jack Davis is concerned for students who should return to classes.
“If you look at the NBA, they are playing in a bubble right now. NFL players are the ones to get out of contracts because they think it’s unsafe,” he said. “I think our kids don’t really have the option to get out.”
