No one has said that they are not getting infected. It's about how common it is.

Day-care, preschools and primary schools were never closed here in Sweden and even in regions where there has been widespread infection there's absolutely nothing to suggest that teachers are at any significantly higher risk of being infected. If there were at a notably higher risk of infection it would have been obvious at this point since it has been months.

Studies have been done by the public health agencies in Norway and Denmark where they concluded that closing their schools had no significant impact on the rate of infection.
