Georgian lawmaker creates COVID-19 whistleblower email for students and teachers


Georgia State House member Beth Moore urges students, teachers or administrators to anonymously report unsafe conditions at schools, which have started to reopen as COVID-19 cases continue to increase. A Georgia principal threatened those who shared images of the school with “consequences”, prompting Moore to set up an email account for whistleblowers.North Paulding High School in Dallas, Ga. Has been the subject of nationwide criticism over viral photos showing students shoulder-to-shoulder in the hallway with less than half wearing masks. The school first suspended two students who shared the photos, then reversed course and lifted the suspension. Nine students and staff then tested positive for the coronavirus, forcing the school to temporarily close one week after reopening.
