The Cody School District has one student isolated due to a positive test and 13 quarantined due to close contact with a positive case outside of school, superintendent Peg Monteith announced Wednesday afternoon.

Three staff members, not teachers, have also been quarantined.

"We will continue our efforts with heightened sanitizing and disinfecting; mask wearing and social distancing," she wrote. "Our partnership with Public Health is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dr. Billin and staff at Public Health. We appreciate our community partners supporting the district's efforts to keep schools safe."

6,000 scientists and doctors sign petition to end lock-downs, social distancing and mandatory masks:

It turns out these authoritarian actions have destroyed at least seven times more years of human life than have been saved.

Good Job!

“Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids. There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.” – CDC – May 2020

"influenza virus transmission" this is a corona virus spread by droplets coming out of peoples mouths and there are several corroborating studies (Texas A&M, Harvard Medical and about 300 on the journaling service I just checked) that corroborate this as well as pretty much every public health official/entity; deliberately spreading misinformation during a pandemic should be a jailable offense.

I meant research confirms masks are 80% or more effective at stopping a carrier who is wearing a mask from spreading the virus to another person.

Dr. Aaron Billin told me the efficacy of a cloth face mask against airborne Covid-19 is 5% and an N95's efficacy is 40%. He also told me I am the only person to have asked the question. The latest CDC statistics show persons from 0-19 years old who have contracted Covid-19 have a 99.997% survival rate. The lowest survival rate is 70+years old at 94.6% - and that's with an average of 2.6 comorbidities. The Chinese virus death rates have been blown completely out of proportion by the fake news media.

I'm not aware that I have ever spoken with this individual. I have never quoted these figures to him or anyone else as they are not true. My extensive review of the medical literature shows strong evidence for the use of masks in reducing the spread of COVID-19. In 6 months I have never come across a single scientific study that suggests that masks are not effective. We strongly encourage all to wear a face covering when in public and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distance, especially indoors. - Aaron Billn, MD

We've long known that the evidence is equivocal for mask use for influenza. However we are dealing with COVID-19, not influenza. COVID-19 specific mask studies now being completed faster than they can be published and show overwhelming evidence for the efficacy of mask use in limiting the spread of COVID-19.
