Hi, My name is Aishwaria, and I'm going to be a highschool junior. What I love to do, over my free time is bake, play badminton, embroidery, help people in whatever I can help them for, and also raise awareness to situations. So far for IWC, I have written blogs about COVID-19 news, a blog for recommendation, and also made cards and posters for various different groups. (True Davidson Acres, Michael Garron Hospital, Trillium Health Partner.) For blogs in the future I will be talking how different countries are reopening schools. If you haven't checked my latest one was for Ontario. While writing this blog, I found some fascinating things that might interest you readers. Throughout my experience with IWC, I hope to gain more skills, and help people in need throughout these tough times!

COVID 19 + School Reopening In USA:
∙ In this blog I will be stating how some of the states are reopening schools which includes Florida, California, Alabama, and Arizona.
∙ President Donald Trump even tweeted that schools must open in the fall.
∙ It was reported that more than “97,000” childrens got COVID-19 during the last two weeks of July. This concerns school boards and their reopening strategies.
To start off, the things stated here might vary by county. Some counties in Florida start school today (2020-08-17). They plan to reopen the school and welcome the children's back. Social distancing will be maintained throughout the school whether it be the classroom, hallways, lunch time, etc. Masks are required to be worn by the students. However, many staff, parents, and even students are worried about going to school during this worldwide pandemic.
California schools will be starting school virtually as the rates of COVID-19 are high in the county. However, they have made a waiver which allows schools to open even in these high rated counties.
They are planning to reopen schools with these precautions:
∙ Face Covering (Masks)
∙ Physical Distancing
∙ “Increased Sanitation”
Also extra curricular will be proceeding with as many precautions to safely execute it.
Schools will be reopening with all the precautions that are taken to ensure safe reopening. There is also an option of taking school online. Students have to be apart 6ft or 2m whether it be lining up to desks apart.
