Fixed it for you.


But did they say OP cant wear a mask?

Still irrelevant, you can work with a mask.

OP wants to stay at home and collect payments.

I don't want to find out what happens in class first hand, let other countries reopen and analyse their covid results first before rushing into reopening.
Luckily Korea's been so kind to take that 2- month-lead.

Been awhile since I checked this forum.

It's a legit hypothetical scenario if you think about it.

Again, this has nothing to do with wanting to stay at home and get paid.  I've said from day one I want to be in school
teaching and continuing the school life / annual events / plans.  Instead it's all been scrapped over this paranoia and over reaction
to covid19 fears.

I'm actually saying that I don't even want to get paid.  I just want to stay at home if we aren't going to do anything meaningful at school
and "waste" time.   I understand we can all use that time wisely do lesson prep and work on other useful things, but whatever it is we are doing
in empty schools for the past 3 months are things we could easily be doing at home.   

The whole premise of the argument is that we are dragged out here to school yet schools are "closed" because it's too dangerous that you might spread the virus.   Duh.  If it's too dangerous that you had to close schools for fear of spreading the virus, then why are we here everyday? Clearly
it's not dangerous.

I've been saying it's actually safer here than it is going outside.  They have it all backwards.  Allowing people to go outside hanging around stores, cities, shops, restaurants, you name it, but it's too dangerous to go to school?   So the latest cases of 2 students being tested positive for the virus in Incheon HS was traced to the students being at a coin game room in the city and guess who was at that coin game room?  Someone who was also at the itaewon night clubs during the outbreak.   

See my point?  The virus is not caught in school.  Schools aren't the danger.  It's allowing people to go to these public places that are still open which was the problem in the first place.  If people just go from home to school and follow the quarantine guidelines, schools would just be part of the quarantine zones.

The problem is when everything else is allowed to be open but schools remained closed.    If they had just shut down night clubs and pc bangs and gaming rooms and even put laws barring students from going outside to these places, then you wouldn't be getting sick.   Then they wouldn't be bringing any virus to school. 

That's why I am saying hypothetically, if school resumes and now all these people are back in school, how is it not reasonable to argue that we are now putting our lives at risk exposing ourselves to potential carriers? 

So in summary if you still don't get it, here it is in bullet point:

1) Schools are closed because it's dangerous and people could die of the virus (esp. parents fears yet they let their kids go outside to gaming rooms where they contracted the virus)
2) Schools are open  but the % risk is still the same as it was 2 or 3 months ago, but now they want you to go school and if I say it's too dangerous
    and risking my life, I'm not allowed to say that? Statistically it's not anymore dangerous or anymore safe now than it was 2 months ago.   If you look at % wise, it's literally no difference. 

Like I said, the moment there's a one case reported somewhere in this country at a school, they will shut down all the schools again and repeat this whole delay process until we basically just call it a year which is what I said in February.   If you're that scared because there were 100 cases in the country then you'll never be safe so long as there is even 1 case in the country, I guess you should close down schools because of that.


BTW, the title is meant to be sarcastic because 99.99% of all of you don't actually believe your life is in danger even though you've been going out to school for the last 3 months and when school resumes and students are back, nobody is clearly scared of dying of covid19.

I fully agree with you, I honestly believe that each one of us will have long-lasting damage in our lungs from it. I used to exercise regularly and eat organic veg and consider myself 'healthy' but the slight pain has not subsided yet and going uphill has become a battle of willpower ever since I had that week of diarrhoea.

How the heck did anything get done for the first 100,000 years of human existence while we were constantly beset by plagues?

 ;D

I'm pretty sure that our covid-19 tribe would have been mauled alive by sabletooth tigers trying to run uphill to safety. My lungs still burn despite living near the coast in almost pristine ocean air.
