The teenager said he understands why people are upset, but said he shared the photo because he felt like it was the right thing to do.

But I know that a lot of the kids I go to school with, I̵7;ve already gotten feedback on it, threats and things like that,” Hannah said. “I know I’m doing the right thing and it ‘s not going to stop me from doing it. threaten “.
The school is closed after students test positive
Last week, high school in Dallas, Georgia – about 40 miles from Atlanta – attracted nationwide attention because of Hannah’s photograph. The viral image showed students in a school hallway filled with some visible masks. The school district resumed classes on August 3rd.
Hannah previously told CNN that she shared the photo because she was concerned for the safety of her classmates and school staff, as well as the wider community.
As of Sunday, nine students at the school had tested positive for the virus and the district announced it would move online learning to Monday and Tuesday.
Following the news that the school will be closed for at least two days, Hannah said many people have told her they are being tested for the virus.
“I have heard from many friends that they have taken tests or that their family members or their teacher have been tested because he has not been safe these days,” she said. “We were only at school for three days and the fact that we have nine cases at the end of that week is disturbing because we do not know how many people had those nine people in contact.”
“It will spread like wildfire in that school,” she added.
School ‘used us as guinea pigs’
Hannah previously told CNN she has no regrets about sharing the photo.
On Sunday, she said she did not think the school would address the issue as soon as it did if it had not posted the image.
“We could have delayed the opening like many other schools,” she said. “They sent us to school and used us as pigs to see what would happen later.”
Sofomora also said she understands that people want to have the opportunity to learn in school for a variety of reasons, and she does a lot, but it is still not safe.
“We’re all pretty worried about going back and I know a lot of my teachers are too. Because we all want to go in person,” Hannah said. “I do not intend to close the city because I know that many people do not learn well online, I do not learn well online and I want to be able to go to school in person and have a kind of normalcy this year for my semester. But we we can not if we are not sure. “
