2. Studies showing that kids don't get it as bad and don't spread it as much. So opening schools is safe for the kids and helps the parents. And before you bring in the age of the teachers and who they might be around there are options for the high risk situations where they can isolate or resign or be re-assigned and. Grandparents raising children might need to home school if they are at risk. Fortunately, they are free to do that and more importantly, they probably aren't working therefore homeschooling doesn't impact their finances.
3. I am tired of this mess and more importantly I am tired of someone else telling me what I can and can't do "because it impacts them". It only impacts you if you choose to leave. If you do that, then you choose to take the risks. Don't go to a stadium. Don't go watch a baseball game. And if the athletes don't want to play, sit out a season. I'm sure they can afford it. But let's stop the nanny-state and let people decide what is safe for them. Personal responsibility.
4. Lastly, I heard a great interview today talking about deaths being down 40% because the young, not the old are now the carriers and that will significantly help because the less vulnerable are now the carriers and the high risk are staying safe. There will not be a vaccine for this.
5. Things will go back to normal. Texas bands will have a learning curve because they are behind a year but this is Texas and our bands are the best in the country. In 1 year of normal instruction they will be back to being the best in the country. The only thing I hope it impacts is the ridiculous marching band budgets. I would like to see us get back to what made us so great in the first place - great band sounds, not flashy props on the field.
