Back to School and COVID-19 Concerns

More children are returning to in-person learning as COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are still high across the Country. Some are returning after a year and a half of being away from the classroom. Among those are Students in New York City, where Teachers return Monday facing a Vaccine Mandate. By September 27th, they are required to show proof of having had at least one dose of Coronavirus Vaccine.

Meanwhile in Georgia, some students are going back to remote learning after an increase in COVID cases. This comes as the healthcare system struggles to treat new cases despite an increase in vaccinations since earlier this Summer.

26 States have more than half of their Residents fully vaccinated, and the total U.S. population is more than 50 percent fully vaccinated. However, some hospitals are still filling up with unvaccinated COVID-19 patients.

This all comes as President Biden is set to announce new measures in the International fight against the Pandemic. Dr. Vivek Murthy saying: “There will be more actions that we continue to work on, uh, in the days ahead. And especially on the global front where we’ll be taking steps and the President will be making announcements ahead of the UN General Assembly about additional measures that we’re taking to help vaccinate the world.”
