I just received a message from my boss stating that we should be ready to return to in person teaching 7/26. Even though things are looking good on the daily case front, many teachers in the states have been infected because it’s incredibly hard to socially distance in class, students don’t take masking seriously and they come in contact with dozens of people a day. So I’m worried that, as an unvaccinated teacher, the risk of going back will outweigh the benefits of getting kids back in school over summer break. I totally understand that many cram schools and teachers are under serious financial strain right now, but I’m also terrified that this could go very wrong very quickly.
What do you guys think?
