Ketchikan High closes due to Covid cases

On Monday morning, Ketchikan High School students were dismissed at 10:45 am, with plans to reopen the school no earlier than Wednesday. All practices and after school activities are canceled until at least Wednesday.

The school had “two additional covid cases” that prompted the closure decision, which is based on a matrix the schools in Ketchikan are using.

All students, staff, and families were advised by Principal Jason House to watch for symptoms of Covid, wear a mask, and practice social distancing.

    • PCR test have been officially recalled by FDA as “unreliable” BUT they are allowed to use them until Dec 31st to help fraudulently elevate case numbers (like it was designed to do in the first place) Rothchilds own the patent.

      • censored, PCR tests have not been recalled by the FDA. Where do you come up with this nonsense?

        The CDC pulled its own PCR test from market because it does not need to provide a PCR test when so many available commercial options exist. It’s been an extremely accurate tool, but is not needed to compete with private enterprise.

        The FDA has not recalled PCR tests. PCR stands for polymerase chain reaction. There are many manufacturers of PCR tests. The more you know, the less lies you spout.

        • Finly, a PCR analysis is NOT a ‘test’ and is NOT valid as a diagnostic tool, as its inventor argued strenuously for years (before his death). Run it through enough cycles, and one can be pretty much assured to find anything in anything, as for example the goat and the papaya in Tanzania that “tested positive” for the Wuhan Virus. And it is for precisely that reason that is has been and is being used to “test” for the Wuhan Virus — because doing so leads to many, many false positives.
          This is the first so-called “pandemic” in world history in which “cases” were not determined medically and diagnostically, based on the patient’s symptoms, but solely on the results of a dubiously applied “test”.

          • Complete nonsense, Jefferson. The PCR test is extremely accurate. The inventor of the test never argued against it. You’ve been misinformed, and now you’re spreading bad intel on here. Take ownership. Admit wrongdoing.

          • George, you are completely wrong, and I suspect that you know it, which makes you both wrong and a liar.
            Try doing some reading and research from sources other than the corporate propaganda media, and you will realize the validity of what I stated.

        • Quidel Recalls Lyra SARS-CoV-2 Assay (M120) Due to Risk of False Negative Results. This is polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technology.
          Its still being used until Dec 31st and more than likely well beyond that date.
          The Innova SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Qualitative Test, the CDC’s benchmark COVID diagnostic testing system, will be withdrawn for Emergency Use by the end of 2021 due to an inordinate frequency of false positive and negative results.

          “The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death,” the FDA stated on its website.

          ..the more you know…

    • Caterina, you’re spouting lies. The PCR test is the gold standard. The antibody tests mistake other corona viruses for COVID. PCR tests are used to detect the virus, not antibodies. It helps if you have a clue what you’re talking about.

        • Total nonsense, Jefferson. There is absolutely no evidence to support you “false positive” theory, only speculation based on your need for it to be true. It’s not.

  1. Oh no, not more cases of an essentially benign respiratory virus! Those teenagers only have 99 percent chance of surviving after contacting the virus! We should put a colossal plastic containment around the building, and sacrifice a goat to the Gods for good measure.
    We have become a nation of irrational, panicked hypochondriacs. Despite what the scientifically illiterate, average American believes, the government is lying about the severity of COVID-19. Legitimate evidence contradicting the government narrative about the CCP virus is ubiquitous. However, people in America are addicted to hysteria, and have been taught to elevate emotional responses above rationality; therefore, the average person would rather buy into absurd scientific claims than think critically about the costs of these COVID-19 responses.

    • Nothing else your kids do (or should do) carries a 1% risk of death. Sounds small, but in reality such a death rate far surpasses anything one ever does. Would you board a plane, if they crashed 1% of the time? I think not.

      Don’t try to prove your point with statistical whitewash.

      • Whidbey the Cur, you flat-out LIE in trying to claim that kids face “a 1% risk of death” from the Wuhan Virus. In reality, their risk is more on the order of 0.0001%. Which puts it far BELOW many other everyday risks of life, for none of which you or other Branch Covidian cultists seem to be arguing for the restructuring of society and the elimination of many basic rights. Now just why is that?

    • Wayne, do you always have such disregard for children’s health? Or just when you’re trying to own the libs?

  2. “Cases”.
    Not because of any actual diagnoses, but simply due to supposed “cases” — and most likely as ‘determined’ using the invalid and largely discredited PCR analysis.
    The fearmongering and misinformation campaign marches on.

      • Is this the real life?
        Is this just fantasy?
        There plan is to divide…
        No escape from stupidity.
        Open your eyes,…
        Sheep believe all the hype with glee…
        Its just a big ploy
        No science, no pathology
        Cause communism, here we go…
        WEF, NWO.
        No matter how this all goes
        We will not comply to their decree, you’ll see…

  3. It is quite amazing that you want so badly the virus to take everyone out just to justify your fear.

    Guess what? Humanity is going to make it. Yes, unfortunately that includes you too.

  4. This whole thing with covid is so stupid its panthodic, more and more lies ,day after day , Im so sick of it .

  5. The only cities that are doing this baloney are the liberal run ones. Ketchikan is loaded with them so this is no surprise… Two cases of basically the flu and they are running for the door?? Give me a break!

  6. The children likely face more risk of serious injury or death from the trip from home to school and back than from Covid.
    At least that’s what the statistical tables published by the CDC indicate.
    So unless KHS is loaded with morbidly obese 64+ year old students there really isn’t much benefit to doing this.
    On a positive note, though, I’m sure the school staff are still getting their full pay…heroes, one and all!

  7. Won’t open till next Wednesday. Next Wednesday it will be the following Monday and on and on and on….No school till fall 2022. Here in Juneau I know they want the same thing. There is an all out testing blitz going on. Even vaccinated students must test weekly. Gotta get those positive cases!
