Please join the live Webinar via Zoom https://zoom.us/j/97095986810 The announcement last week of the Federal government funding of over $100 billion to schools to enable them to reopen is a tsunami which could easily wreak havoc on the American K-12 education system. The process by which these funds get delivered, appropriated is unknown. Understandably. We hope someone really smart is sorting this out, because it is complex.

A newly released study in the academic journal Annals of Internal Medicine casts more doubt on policies that force healthy individuals to wear face coverings. To conduct the study, which ran from early April to early June, scientists at the University of Copenhagen recruited more than 6,000 participants who had tested negative for COVID-19 immediately prior to the experiment. Half the participants were given surgical masks and instructed to wear them outside the home; the other half were instructed to not wear a mask outside the home. Roughly 4,860 participants finished the experiment. 42 people in the mask group, or…
