A South Texas school district is “closing temporarily” due to rising COVID-19 cases amongst students and staff members.

Although it’s hard to fathom, the tyrants are attempting to pull the same shenanigans from 2020.

It’s up the people to say “no” and resist COVID tyranny.

“The superintendent of Runge ISD announced in a letter Monday that schools will be closed from Tuesday, Aug. 22 through Friday, Aug. 25,” KSAT reports.

“Anyone who tells you that #txlege did enough to fight #COVID tyranny is misinformed or (probably) lying,” said Texas State Rep. Brian Harrison.


KSAT reports:

“The safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community is a top priority,” Superintendent Hector Dominguez Jr. said in a statement.

Runge, Texas is in Karnes County and is just under an hour and a half away from San Antonio.

The school district updates its COVID-19 case numbers on its website frequently. As of Aug. 21, the district had 10 active cases among staff members.

In addition to the school closures, all extracurricular activities and practices will also be canceled out of precaution.

Students and staff can return to the classroom at 7:50 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 29.

However, Runge ISD isn’t alone in suspending in-person classes due to rising COVID-19 cases.

WDRB reports:

A Kentucky school district sent students home for the week due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases and other illnesses, according to a report by Michael Berk of LEX 18.

Lee County Schools canceled classes for the rest of this week, despite it being only the second week of school.

Lee County is located in western Kentucky.


“We’re seeing an increase in COVID-19 through the seven counties,” said Scott Lockard, the public health director for the Kentucky River District. “In Lee County, the attendance is at that level where they felt they needed to make the call to dismiss classes the rest of the week.”

The school district declared Tuesday and Wednesday to be NTI days, but opted to close altogether on Thursday and Friday this week, according to LEX 18.

The new COVID vaccine will not be available for several weeks.

“Between the flu, RSV and COVID, this could be a very serious fall and winter,” said Kevin Hall, of the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department.
