Massachusetts has been releasing guidelines in preparation for the fall on how school districts should approach topics like facility cleaning, school bus rides, and scenarios in which various members of school communities get coronavirus — if they decide to return to in-person learning at all this fall. Different districts across the state are reaching different conclusions on the matter as Labor Day approaches.

To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Dr. Sandra Nelson, an infectious disease physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, who has also been advising the Baker administration on school reopening plans.
