Video of How Los Angeles Is Making Schools 'Safer' From the Virus Is Raising a Lot of Eyebrows

If you want to talk about something truly creepy and dystopian about the Wuhan coronavirus, get a load of what the Los Angeles Unified School District just put out.

Let’s listen to Austin Buetner as he explains to parents how he’s been working with Microsoft on a “great solution” to ensure that kids can come back to school in the “safest” way possible.

He then introduces Eran Megiddo of Microsoft to talk about “The Daily Pass” that they’ve teamed up on and which, it’s obvious, kids will now be required to comply with to get back into L.A. schools.

But don’t worry. They have a handy dandy little cartoon for you and your kids to help sell it and smooth over any qualms you might have about all this, about the school and some company having your child’s health information and requiring it for them to enter the school.

According to their little cartoon, “each week you can schedule your free on campus covid test.” Each week? What? If you choose to take your weekly test off campus, you can (read: will have to) post the results in your daily pass. Each day you will have to answer questions about your health in order to be able to get the pass and be allowed onto the bus or back into the school where they will test your QR code with a scanner. You health information then will all be on an app that the school through the code will have access to and Microsoft through the app will have.

From Fox 11:

“The Daily Pass sets the highest standard possible for school safety,” said LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner. “MERV-13 upgraded air filters in every school, COVID testing for all students and staff at least every week and now the Daily Pass — Los Angeles Unified is proud to lead the nation in creating the safest possible school environment.”

The LAUSD said it’s the first school district — and likely the largest employer in nation — to adopt the technology, the district said.

“All of this information is shared with the appropriate authorities,” Fox 11 says. Oh, goodie.

If L.A. already has this in place and is trying to convince people on it, you can bet this is coming to other schools near you, even if you’re not from L.A.

It didn’t go over well.
