My son has been teaching 4 days a week and hasn't gotten sick or had a positive covid test since the beginning of the school year. Of course, his district (one town) is upper middle/middle class in Massachusetts--lots of doctors, lawyers, executives, programmers, including professional immigrants--and few trumplicans that do dumb things like party unmasked.

My grandchildren have been attending school half-time in NYC. DGS was notified once that he was exposed to covid and had to quarantine for 2 weeks (he ws fine and tested negative). NYC probably does the best job in the entire country of contact tracing. None of DD's family--including her husband back at his workplace for months--has gotten sick.

SO. I think being very careful works. But it means EVERYONE has to do it. Abnd in some communities where trumplicans predominate, that's just not gonna happen.

So I think Democratic school districts can reopen safely, but perhaps not Republican ones.
