Florida schools should not shut down if someone gets COVID-19, Gov. DeSantis says

Source: WFLA

SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) — As schools in Florida prepare to open in the coming weeks, Gov. Ron DeSantis said they should take a “surgical approach” to respond to any possible COVID-19 cases.

DeSantis made the comments while answering questions from reporters at a roundtable in Sarasota on Friday. The governor, appearing with First Lady Casey DeSantis, was highlighting the secondary issues kids are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic – including mental health struggles and drastic decreases in reported physical and sexual abuses.

“There’s been a 40% decrease between March this year vs. March 2019,” Casey DeSantis said about the reduction in child abuse calls to state hotlines. “A 44% decrease in child abuse investigations and a 32% decrease in sexual abuse call allegations.”

Gov. DeSantis said he also said he thinks “we’re gonna be dealing with ramifications involving mental health for a long time” after the pandemic is over.

5. Yes...kids are less susceptible to symptoms (but long-term ramifications are still unknown)

BUT, they can easily spread it to OTHERS who AREN'T less susceptible!

7. When did he start caring about mental health?

It’s funny how many gop-ers are suddenly concerned with children and mental health. We’ll see how long that lasts once it’s not being used as a cheap political prop.

16. It will last until someone asks them to fund mental health services.

His concern about abuse and neglect is laughable at best. Florida has one of the worst systems in the country. Like most sociopaths he fakes human pretty well. Always reminds me of the alien in Men in Black wearing the human skin.
