Schools in the state of Vermont plan to question children about their activities during the holidays, particularly on Thanksgiving, to determine if their families violated the restrictions set by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus or COVID-19.
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R) said on Tuesday, Nov. 24, that the state’s schools would include new questions during daily health checks about whether students and their parents attended meetings outside their homes after the Thanksgiving holiday, Fox News reported.
Scott signed an executive order earlier this month to restrict meetings between several families. The ban “includes both inside and outside social gatherings, in public and private spaces.”
The draconian measures also mandate that students who visit their grandmother on Thanksgiving Day will be forced to enter quarantine and watch classes online for two weeks.
Confinement will last one week only if they have a negative CCP Virus test at that time, The Blaze reported.
Meanwhile, Vermont Education Secretary Dan French told the Burlington Free Press that state officials expect families to answer questions about Thanksgiving plans honestly.
“Schools operate on trust with their parents and their students, and we’re hopeful this guidance will give them some additional tools to help everyone do the right thing and keep school safe,” French said.
Similarly, Vermont officials urged businesses to implement restrictive policies on the grounds of stopping the spread of the CCP virus.
“We also advise businesses to consider asking employees to quarantine if they don’t adhere to gathering restrictions. This isn’t a way around the ban or an excuse to get together. The more we adhere to this policy, the faster we’ll lower case counts and ease up on restrictions,” Scott announced.
Vermont’s health commissioner, Dr. Mark Levine, said, “Quarantine means staying home and away from other people for 14 days. Do not go to school, do not go to work, do not go out to do errands or recreation other than perhaps a walk alone in the woods,” Fox News reported.
Vermont’s Commissioner for Financial Regulation, Michael Pieciak, issued an alarm based on the 40 percent of cases reported in November, saying that it could increase the infection rate if citizens gather for Thanksgiving.
Vermont state still has the lowest infection rates in the country, with 49 new cases of the CCP Virus reported on Tuesday, bringing the state total since the pandemic began to more than 3,760 cases.
