Too bad if San Mateo County makes the list. I was thinking Menlo Park could be the coronavirus test lab for herding school children together in schools and then back home 5 times a week. Maybe we can use the little town of Atwater (Merced County) for the deadly experiment. A couple of months ago, the City Council there declared their town would re-open with no masks. Among the businesses demanding re-opening were several local "pastors." Check out the meeting tape online.

By the time Newsom comes to his senses most families will be more happy with homeschooling then what goes on in public schools. RECALL Newsom....
