  1. I agree with you. The article just reinforced for me that, until it is safe to be back in school without masks and distancing, learning is going to be negatively impacted whether it is happening online or in a socially distanced classroom.
  2. I came across this piece today and I think it is something that we should definitely be considering. These factors, along with the fact that due to covid protocols we are going to have to keep teachers and students home that have any potential symptoms, I just don’t see socially distanced classrooms as being superior to online learning, except for perhaps the childcare issue. https://gen.medium.com/i-spent-three-weeks-in-school-with-kids-under-covid-19-21b78c1a9339
  3. US deaths were over 1200 today. That hasn’t happened since May. CA and TX both broke records. TX had over 200 deaths. 😖
  4. 1122 deaths in the US today... worst day since the beginning of June. 😞
  5. I have to share these two screenshots. These were projections from May 2 for the U.S. and California. We are getting close to August 4 now and these projections are surprisingly close. ETA: the projections are now 213,000 deaths in the US by Nov 1 and 16,000 for CA. 😞
  6. And every 1-2 days another green dot gets filled.
  7. Yes and from this study it appears that children 10 and up might spread it even better than adults do. 😞
  8. Came across this study today. From NY Times: https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEAn3eCH14F4sfgbAO3wGcSoqFwgEKg8IACoHCAowjuuKAzCWrzwwt4QY?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen Older Children Spread the Coronavirus Just as Much as Adults, Large Study Finds The study of nearly 65,000 people in South Korea suggests that school reopenings will trigger more outbreaks.
  9. My dd is doing an online summer intensive every morning and is dancing in person at her studio a few classes per week. They have 5 or so dancers in a class with a long list of rules and precautions, including having masks on the whole time. Dd got used to dancing in a mask much more quickly than I expected. She is graduating next June and applying to college dance programs and year-round training this fall. She will have to start submitting video auditions soon. If she didn’t need to be at the top of her game right now she would just be training at home. We are being very careful in all o
  10. I saw that Newsom will be holding a press conference at noon tomorrow re: CA schools. I think a big announcement is coming.
  11. I’m curious, do you feel this way about parking tickets? Fines for smoking in a no smoking area? Littering? Should we get rid of penalties for these things because some people might not be able to pay them? Are our jails full of people that couldn’t pay these fines? I don’t see much difference between these types of violations and a fine for not wearing a mask/throwing a big party during a pandemic. I don’t want people going to jail for these things, but the fact that penalties exist certainly shapes public behavior.
  12. LA Unified School District announced today that they will be starting the school year completely virtually.
  13. I don’t think we should be throwing people in jail for not wearing a mask or not social distancing. But I’m all for fining them. The funds raised can go toward payments to businesses that can’t be allowed to open because the virus is out of control. Or to pay for health care for essential workers. I can’t tell you how many people I know who think this is a joke and are still having parties, BBQs, etc. without social distancing. They will put on a mask to walk into the grocery store because they have to.
  14. We have an Italian Greyhound and they aren’t all super fragile. Our first two were smaller and thinner boned. This one is feisty and on the sturdier, larger side for the breed (there is a pretty wide range). She’s already killed (murdered, if you ask my kids) three rabbits in our yard, and a fourth had a close escape only because I intervened. Our first two never did such things! Anyway, we all adore her. I have a soft spot in my heart for coonhounds... probably comes from reading Where the Red Fern Grows as a kid...
