COVID-19 is spreading among the vaccinated and unvaccinated with the omicron variant bypassing the booster altogether. With kids heading back to class this week, I'm afraid the virus will cripple our school system again  with online learning and more mask mandates.

But is that the answer?

I don't think so when vaccinated people can transmit the virus just the same as unvaccinated people.

The only difference is vaccinated people are more protected. And when it comes to 5 to 11-year-old kids in Kentucky and Indiana, less than 10% are fully vaccinated.

Here's what our viewers had to say:

"Our kids need to be back in school, enough of the NTI."

"This is dangerous for the kids, and for the parents."

"I think we are just asking for more trouble by sending our children back to school."

"It's getting bad or worse. I feel the same way about day care teachers. It's also going through the day care. So, if school can shut down and isolate, I'm wondering what is going to happen with the daycares, going forward."

"The unvaccinated can't spread it if they don't have it."

"It's mind boggling what these people have done to the world and to the United States."

"It looks like it's going to be around for two years or longer, just like the Spanish flu was 100 years ago."
