Biden Adviser on Reopening Schools: ‘Probably’

“President said probably he didn’t say absolutely,” noted Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to President Biden on the possibility of schools reopening in the fall of 2021 with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “We can’t look in a crystal ball and say what September looks like.”

“But given the science, if the vaccination program in this country proceeds, if people do go get their vaccines there, he does believe that schools should be able to reopen in September and reopen safely following the CDC guidelines.”

“But [President Biden] said probably, he did not say absolutely because we’ve all seen this since, unfortunately, January 2020, it’s an unpredictable virus. It is a virus that has mutated. So we can’t look in a crystal ball and say what September looks like. But we do believe that if people go get their vaccine, they have doubts about it. They should ask their doctor. They should ask people who’ve already gotten it. Yeah, they should certainly do their own research. But if people get their vaccine, if schools follow the CDC guidelines, then, as he said, we probably should be able to have them open.”
