1/5 This is a model of my son’s class in Scotland today, Sept 13. We’ve had 9+ cases in 24hrs. All the cases are clustered in the back of the class. The windows were open. 🔴=positive (so far) 🟢=negative/untested ⚪️= empty seat. We’ve been told class transmission doesn’t happen

2/5 This classroom provides an extraordinary example of the spread happening faster in class than home. 2 of the 🔴 cases in the back cluster also have twin siblings in the same class who sat in the front and have tested 🟢neg. 9 cases! 1 in 7 kids are likely to dev #longcovid
3/5 This could’ve been prevented. We’ve known about the risks, we’ve known how to reduce them. Ventilation is not enough even now in mild weather w/ the windows open. We need a CO2 monitor and HEPA air purifier in every room. We need classmates to count as close contacts.
4/5 We only know about these cases because of parents sharing information. Things need to change. This is why we’ve started Clean Air For Class. Please sign & share our petition chng.it/mXc4sLHqNt. Follow us @CA4Class
