South Carolina State Superintendent Molly Spearman just released final recommendations for districts to consider as they plan for the new school year even as the state is experiencing a sharp rise in covid-19 cases. More than 1,000 were reported on Monday, adding to a sharp spike in June.
In fact, nearly half of the states have seen a rise in cases this month as they were opening up in various stages, with a big surge in the South and West. And 10 states have recently seen the sharpest rises since the pandemic began months ago.
