Each day the number of students testing positive for coronavirus continues to increase a lot of schools in Michigan are realizing that it may be better to return to virtual learning.
If the students are at home and they catch the virus it is a lower chance that they will spread it to their classmates. The numbers for the virus are starting to increase by the day.
In an article from Fox 2 News called "40 students at Shelby's Eisenhower HS positive for COVID-19, over 400 quarantined" by Charlie Langton and Fox 2 Staff stated
"The school's superintendent confirmed the information to FOX 2's Charlie Langton, saying that 40 students have tested positive. The school was forced to shut down in-person learning and return to virtual learning until at least April 19, in accordance with the Macomb County Health Department.
The superintendent added that 400 students were quarantined after possibly having close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
The school is also pausing sports tryouts and new dates will be shared with students and parents when possible."
Schools have become the new hot spot for Coronavirus because students are interacting on a daily basis and some may not be wearing masks.
We also have to take into consideration the decrease in social distancing, and it is starting to hit the younger population very hard.
The goal is to reduce the number of people that are catching the virus. If pausing sports and in-person school then that is something that we will have to endure for a while.
