As conversations continue around the return to school in the fall amid rising cases of the coronavirus Newsy reporter Amber Strong sat down with Deborah Birx of the Coronavirus Task Force about what schools could look like in the fall.
"We haven't done this before. We've done this kind of like the flu when you had a flu outbreak in a school and the school has had to close down classrooms or stop birthday parties or ask people to stop sleepovers," said Birx. "It's going to be like that but in a different way, I think. We just have to be more quickly responsive due to the amount of asymptomatic spread."
Newsy also spoke to Birx about the rise in cases throughout the country.
"So they are places that have really controlled the virus and if people continue to do what they are doing successfully they will stay in that place. But there are places like Texas, Florida, Arizona, California that haven't been as successful. In those cases, we think a lot of that spread is from bars, Indoor bars."
