It’s been fourteen months since we last experienced life as we know it, and school is no exception. The last year has seen a total shut down of schools followed by exclusively remote learning, followed by distance-learning, hybrid learning, homeschooling, and what feels like a never-ending list of transitions as school districts exhaust all efforts to get back to “normal.”
In a surprise move this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed its COVID-19 safety guidance for those who have been fully vaccinated.
According to the new guidelines, fully vaccinated adults can now safely gather indoors as well as outside without face masks or social distancing. Some exclusions apply, but generally speaking, those who are fully vaccinated are pretty much cleared to return to life as usual.
