DeVos Vows Students Will Return To Class This Fall; CDC Adds New Symptoms to Covid-19 List, and other C-Virus Updates

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said she intends to have students back in classrooms this fall.
“Parents are expecting that this fall their kids are going to have a full-time experience with their learning, and we need to follow through on that promise,” DeVos told told “Fox News Sunday,” adding that “kids cannot afford to not continue learning.”
She said it’s “not a matter of if” but a “matter of how.”
DeVos said students have already been harmed by not being in school during the spring amid the coronavirus pandemic, and some who have been staying home could be suffering from mental, emotional and social issues.
“They’ve fallen behind this spring, we need to ensure they’re back in a classroom situation wherever possible and whenever possible, and fully functioning, fully learning,” she said.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace pointed out that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did not say schools had to close and released guidelines last month for how they could reopen safely.
DeVos acknowledged that exceptions could be made in areas that are seeing a spike in cases.
