St. Charles County tables resolution on school quarantine rules
ST. CHARLES, Mo. – St. Charles County Council has tabled a resolution on student quarantine rules.
Resolution 21-09 was under debate. If passed, the power to decide on the quarantine of students at St. Charles schools will rest with the school board rather than the health department.
Currently, the Ministry of Health makes the decisions.
For many, their concern is whether quarantine and other covid rules such as mask and vaccine warrants should be managed by the government or by the individual.
“What we should do is take care of our health and the education of our children and we as parents decide what is best for our children, not you,” said Parent, Lindy Wiliford .
Wiliford is in favor of the resolution.
But with every comment for the resolution, there was another against it asking to hand power over to health officials.
“What freedoms are we talking about? The freedom to get sick or possibly die, the freedom to infect others and possibly risk our health, in environments with low vaccination rates, the primary freedom is actually given to the virus itself, ”Nancy said. Zolner, public commentator.
St. Charles County Council believes state regulations on COVID-19 exposure and quarantine are hampering students’ ability to learn.
The resolution says that individual school boards should be the decision makers.
St. Charles County Council says in the resolution that the current quarantine rules hurt.
