Wenatchee High School force school children to practice their music crammed in small green tents.

The school put children in pop-up tents as COVID-19 enclosures for its music.

Pictures of a high school band in Washington state rehearsing in ‘bubble’ tents due to the coronavirus pandemic has sparked debate on social media.

Students at the recently reopened Wenatchee High School were pictured in the band room zipped into bright green tents as an inventive way to keep them social distance while playing. 

However photos of the students crammed into the small enclosures with their instruments has sparked debate online with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene leading critics tweeting that it was ‘child abuse’.

Congresswoman Greene tweeted: ‘End this nonsense, America!’ wrote the congresswoman, who has been a vocal critic of coronavirus restrictions.

From the start of the year, Washington school districts have been allowed to begin reopening across all grades if their area is averaging fewer than 50 new coronavirus cases per 100,000 residents.

According to the Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, 28.3 percent of students are now back in schools on any given day across all grades.

Only 17 percent of high school students are back in schools on average on any given day.

At least 33.1 percent of the state’s students are now in schools at least once a week.

This is higher among elementary school students, where 41.8 percent are in-person at least once a week. It drops to 21.8 percent for high school students.

A report last week from Washington State Department of Health found that there had been ‘fairly low’ transmission of COVID-19 in Washington schools since August.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control also issued new guidance that there is strong evidence in-person learning can be done safely and emphasized measures like hand washing, disinfection, diagnostic testing and contact tracing.

It added that vaccination of teachers is important but not a prerequisite for reopening schools.
