Covid crisis facing schools captured in one photograph showing hallway absolutely packed with students

A PHOTO that circulated on social media showed the lack of coronavirus safety procedures at a Georgia school during the first day back.

One parent claimed on Twitter that the school pictured was North Paulding High School in Paulding County, Georgia.

In Paulding County, schools are reportedly opening with support from the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia Department of Public Health, however they are opening with "guidelines, not mandates," TMZ reported.

The parent who identified the school on Twitter revealed the school sent a letter to parents stating several football players tested positive for coronavirus.

"Because the affected football players may have associated with other North Paulding students, we are notifying all NPHS parents so that you can monitor your student for symptoms and take appropriate steps for testing if needed," the letter read.

The school advised parents to check the temperature of students twice a day and check for COVID-19 symptoms.

The image shows students packing the hallway and with less than half pictured wearing face coverings.

Another photo of students at Etowah High School in Woodstock, Georgia, also raised concern as it showed a large group of students grouped together without masks.

Both photos come a day after teachers in New York protested Mayor Bill de Blasio's reopening plan for schools by carrying coffins and a guillotine through the streets.
