Just in case you thought @fordnation was transparent about COVID transmission settings, their website is STILL having difficulties. We wouldn鈥檛 want people to see graphs like this one!

I鈥檇 love for someone from the media to ask Premier @fordnation or Health Min. @celliottability on why they refuse to repeal Bill 124. Constantly proclaiming we are heroes while actively suppressing our wages & ability to negotiate our contracts is insulting. #onpoli

I had a student inform me that they will be online this week because they are isolating after being exposed to Covid. They showed up to school today! When I informed the office I was told there is nothing admin can do because they are not allowed to ask families about it? WHAT?

Has Doug Ford asked Galen Weston yet whether we should follow Dr. Tam's advice and extend the current 5-day quarantine period? #onpoli

A colleague at my former school told me that she had 2 kids in her class tell her that they currently have COVID. She told the principal and was told that it鈥檚 up to the parents to keep them home, and to keep distance from them. Also, obviously, snitches get stitches, so zip it.

Public servant at Ministry of Education decries the circus there. Can't wait until June.

Working as a teacher directly with a student that tests positive and nope, you're not a high risk contact. Also nope. Can't tell the rest of the class. Guess how that feels for the teacher?

Every hospital has a covid ward. No hospital has a vaccine injury ward.

It would be wonderful if a journalist would ask @Sflecce @celliottability @fordnation why, according to Ministry documents, schools were deemed high risk environments before Christmas but, suddenly became low risk 2 weeks later at the beginning of January?

Not every class has hepa filters. Don't believe Lecce's lies. Oh yeah and the N95 masks for staff!
No HEPA filter in my classroom and a grand total of 2 masks. Thanks to the Ontario government鈥檚 generosity, I feel so safe and supported! /s #onted #FordFailedKids #FireLecce

Did anyone of the #onpoli media that fawned over Ford's PR stunt on Monday do an expose on how poorly prepared schools are? The cloth masks are a joke. Not everyone got 2 RATs. Hepa filter machines are rare to find. @ColinDMello @RichardCityNews @CityCynthia @CP24 @Travisdhanraj

This thread is amazing. And sobering. #FireLecce #FordFailedKids
#Ontario teachers and students, if you'd like to share your back to school at peak Omicron experiences, but feel uncomfortable or unable to do so publicly, my DMs are open and am happy to share them while protecting your anonymity.

Guess how well screening is going? Putting aside I mean the fact that a large percentage of cases will be asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic, or pauci-symptomatic

Replying to @TheRickWilson
I was just the volunteer in the ICU waiting room (pre-pandemic), and I know what those doctors and nurses and respiratory therapists and lab techs and housekeeping staff and and and go through on the job. Covid is our Third World War, and these folks are on the Front Line daily.

Remember when we all banged pots for our PSWs and Nurses and now the feds had to pass law to protect them from harassment? In 2 short years鈥
