Protect teachers and students

The country has forgotten something important; COVID-19 is still here! Teachers and students are not prepared to return to school and maintain our health and safety.  Schools were originally closed for a reason. The rapid spread of COVID-19 caused millions of deaths across the globe and put all of us at risk. The risk has not changed. All we can do is change our approach to daily life and hope to protect ourselves.  At LEAST for the first quarter of the school year, we should STRONGLY consider continuing (and improving upon) virtual learning. Why put our children, and their teachers, at risk? We do not know enough about this virus to be so bold. Better safe, than sorry.
