As cases arrived and spread across Minnesota, many of our daily routines came to a screeching halt as difficult choices were made in our communities over whether to continue functioning as “normal.” As a private Catholic high school based in Victoria, determining what our “normal” should look like was the immediate question. We understood the seriousness of COVID-19, and saw the pain and risk experienced by many as a result. We also knew that to continue in-person learning as safely and effectively as before, we would need to do so with the full support of our teachers, staff, students and their families.

    OAKLAND (CBS SF/AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom was highly critical Friday of a plan from the California Legislature aimed at getting students back in classrooms this spring.

The Joe Biden government will reopen as of February 19 the cases of asylum seekers returned to Mexico by a program of former President Donald Trump that forced these people to remain in that country while waiting for their appointments in US immigration courts .

The statement indicates that this is “phase one” of a program “to restore safe and orderly processing“of immigrants on the southern border.

    Facing criticism that President Joe Biden has not acted aggressively enough on reopening schools, the White House on Thursday said it’s aiming for a full reopening but will defer to science experts on how to achieve it in the middle of a pandemic. The White House drew criticism this week when it said schools would be considered opened if they teach in-person at least one day a week. Asked about it Thursday, press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden hopes to get students in the classroom five days a week as soon as it’s safe. Psaki did not detail a timeline for that milestone, however, saying the administration will act on new school guidance that’s expected to be released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I can assure any parent listening that his objective, his commitment, is to ensuring schools are open five days a week,” Psaki said...

Psaki said the administration would be following the highly anticipated guidance that is expected to be put out on Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how best to safely reopen schools. The White House faced some criticism from parents, teachers, students and local officials after Psaki said their goal was to have in-person teaching at least one day a week in the majority of schools within Biden's first 100 days in office. That marker fell short of what many expected Biden was...

    Miami : February 10, 2021February 10, 2021 0 The governor of the state of New York, Andrew Cuomo announced the reopening – with limited capacity – of closed sports stadiums and concert halls as of February 23. Cuomo explained that the reopening will be carried out with limited capacity, that is to say that those sports facilities with a total capacity of 10,000 people, for example, may reopen at 10% of their capacity. He also clarified that each sports or recreational center in the state must present a plan to the state health department that will have to be approved to authorize the reopening. That plan should include the mandatory use of mask Y assigned seats to facilitate social distancing. In addition, each attendee must submit a negative result of a PCR test –not a quick test – within 72 hours of the event....

    President Joe Biden on Sunday said it was necessary for kids to return "safely" to school and to expect the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to release "science-based" guidelines later this week on requirements for schools to reopen amid the ongoing pandemic.  The president’s comments came during a pre-Super Bowl interview on "CBS Evening News." Asked by anchor Norah O’Donnell whether some 20 million American children having not been in the classroom for nearly a year – and the mental health damage that has caused – constituted a "national emergency," Biden said that it does. The president said he thought it was time for schools to reopen "safely" under certain guidelines. "You have to have fewer people in classrooms. You have to have ventilation systems that have been re-worked," Biden said. "Our CDC commissioner is going to be coming out with science-based judgement within I think...
    Some California churches on Saturday said they planned to reopen their doors this weekend after the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the state’s ban on indoor worship services during the pandemic, ruling that Gov.

Bishop Arthur Hodges, senior pastor of South Bay United Pentecostal Church in the San Diego suburb of Chula Vista, called the ruling “a major victory.” “We are thrilled and excited to go back to church without legal threat of fines or arrest,” Hodges said in a television interview broadcast on Fox 5. “And it opens up churches in the entire state of California.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has reversed his position on allowing restaurant workers to get a COVID-19 vaccine, adding them to the current eligibility phase at the discretion of local heath departments in the state.

    Despite denials of any arrangement with big money Wall Street backers, there’s still widespread belief that the inability to purchase these specific companies has been coordinated to disadvantage retail stock traders.

Aptly named WeBull CEO Anthony Denier spoke to Yahoo Finance and said that temporarily restricting Koss, AMC and GameStop trades was not a “political decision” and instead had to do with “settlement mechanics in the market.” As he explained, they have to fund each trade with a central clearing house for two days, and the cost of the collateral to WeBull’s clearing firm became to expensive to front the cost on their trader’s behalf.

And in New Jersey, youth sports will be allowed to resume this weekend. These were temporary measures designed to control the spread of COVID through the holidays.
