While many districts have opted to start the school year fully remote, several of the schools that have returned to in-person learning have already had COVID-19 outbreaks.

School is back in session for many districts in Michigan, including Detroit. If your local district, or college, or university hasn't restarted, you may at least be picking up supplies, and in some cases, technology for distance learning. But the ticker is already in motion for COVID-19 cases associated with schools.
