As a mother of two school-age children and as an educator, I plead with you to mandate virtual learning this fall. We do not have testing and contact tracing capabilities to ensure the safe reopening of schools. I worry about my children’s long-term health and my own health as an adult school employee, and for my friends and family that I would come into contact with outside school hours. It is unconscionable to put our kids and educators at risk when our COVID rates are still so high. Please help keep us safe.
