Though the Lubbock area has had no recorded confirmed cases of Covid 19, community spread can begin with untested asymptomatic individuals of any age.

Many of our teachers and school staff as well as relatives of our students are immuno-compromised, over age 60 otherwise particularly vulnerable to Covid-19. Extending spring break a week and making school attendance optional thereafter is a start, but it still leaves local educators unprotected. Guidance has been for schools to close between 8 and 20 weeks.

Lubbock might be in time to protect our community if we act now. Schools must be closed, despite the inconveniences, to protect our entire community. #flattenthecueve
