Absolutely stunning. I loved your article. You are absolutely right. It’s not high school and it’s not a game. We have been trying to manage this pandemic and yet there are people who are working against that effort. There is a serious problem in this country when no one can admit when they are wrong.

The science denials have to stop and we should all move forward with a level of focus that this crisis demands. We need to expand testing, expand contact tracing programs, require masks be worn in public, and have a serious discussion on how we can open schools safely.

I’m afraid that none of these things will happen and that the virus will get bad again in the fall.
