As a senior citizen with a granddaughter in high school and a son who teaches in Columbia Public Schools, I believe the schools should not reopen in-person until there is a reliable vaccine.
I, myself, am sequestering until there is a vaccine. Our children are the hope of the future, and teachers are the hope of the present. Keep them safe.
