A Way Forward: Reopening Schools

Thursday, January 7, 2021, 11:00 am EST –12:00 pm EST

Covid-19 vaccines have arrived, with enough supply to vaccinate as many as 50 million people by the end of January. But these initial doses will do little in the short term to arrest an epidemic that is raging out of control. This episode of #RFBreakthrough our panel held a discussion about what it will take to reopen schools. Our panel of experts shared how they are using Covid-19 testing protocols along with other measures outlined in our third National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan to safely reopen and stay open.
