In the event that a child is sent home from school because a classmate tests “positive” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), Peel Health of Canada wants that child to be isolated in solitary confinement away from friends and even family members for a full two weeks.
This was stated in new guidelines issued by Peel, which are already being condemned by watchdog groups as cruel and unusual punishment against innocent little ones, not to mention the fact that it is a completely unscientific suggestion.

“This is cruel punishment for a child, especially for younger children 4-10 years old,” says Dr. Susan Richardson, a microbiologist and infectious disease physician who is also a professor emerita at the University of Toronto, as quoted by The Sun.
“Shutting a child off from their parents and siblings for up to 14 days in this manner could produce significant and long-lasting emotional and psychological effects.”
According to Peel, even if a child does not show any symptoms and was merely in the same classroom as another child who tested “positive,” he or she should “stay in a separate bedroom” and “eat in a separate room apart from others.”
“If the child must leave their [sic] room, they [sic] should wear a mask and stay 2 metres apart from others,” the guidelines further state. “It is strongly recommended to test for COVID-19 on or after the date listed in your letter.”
If there are other children living within the same home, they, too, should stay home from school or child care until the other child returns back to school or child care.
These other children do not need to self-isolate in a separate room, according to Peel, however they “should not go out to play with friends or see family who don’t live with [them].”
