And Kamala also said she wants to give 2k per person and 2k per dependent retroactive to March and to 3 months post pandemic.

Dem plans- Promise money and try to buy votes.
Promising money and buying votes from different people than Republicans. Not excusing it. It’s not ideal either way.

But the original point is having a plan for schools. It’s been a mess for administrators trying to figure this out without any guidance or assistance. I have relatives in school administrations who have stated this.
There were attempts to have plans in place though and things weren't working, had to be changed. Biden is just Monday morning quarterbacking (sorry, his team is because we know it's not him). There are teacher shortages in lots of school districts across the country. How do you make classes smaller and hire more teachers if there aren't any to hire? You can't just magically say you're hired and 10,000 teachers show up with certificates in hand. What class space? Is their money to build new classrooms in there as well?

The couple of schools that I am aware of have a ton of safety protocols. What has Biden laid out that is incremental, and beneficial, to those protocols?

But more importantly, should the President be putting together school safety plans? All school have local leadership - shouldn’t they be making safety plans? Like they have been. Why would Owasso HS need Trump or Biden to implement “safety procedures in schools for them to operate“?
You do know there are different levels of governance, right? It doesn’t mean they would regulate what schools can/can’t do, but they could provide guidelines and protocols schools can adopt instead of making it up as they go without any expertise or resources. What’s the point of a federal department of education, if they can’t pool resources to provide guidance during times of uncertainty like this?
Wait, hasn't the department of education and the cdc already come up with those rough guidelines?

Lets not get too excited about oklahoma's positive cases in the next few weeks. They are going back to march to add probable cases to positive cases. They will report them with the rest until they get caught up. We will not be in a new outbreak. Just adding anyone that had a cough or a runny nose since march.
they should create a new category for those....in fact all states should have a specific category for catch up reporting. We still do not have a national policy for consistent reporting and it just jacks the entire process and data up. I still do not understand why there isn't a national standard for reporting for COVID
Shouldn't the cdc have a standard of reporting infectious diseases already? A protocol in place?

Not completely accurate, the numbers are representative of the TMC System which covers hospitals over the 9 county area that makes up Greater Houston.

Bullshit stories out of Houston have been going since June. Crenshaw has been quick to straighten most of them out. There is no integrity in the media. Any of the media it’s bullshit slanted different ways.

First New Zealand and now Thailand. Seems about the 100 day mark without any new cases seems to be the best bench mark anyone can achieve right now

Temple announces they are shutting down in person classes and sending everyone off campus and will move to online learning for at least the 1st full semester after COVID outbreaks among students.

One of SUNY campus in upstate NY also announced today they are doing the same for the 1st semester
