President Trump criticized White House Task Force Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx in a tweet after she said the pandemic is “extraordinary widespread” in the U.S. Trump said he thinks “we’re doing very well.” California was one of the first states to shut down and was relatively successful at containing the virus but since the state re-opened, it has overtaken New York for the most Covid-19 cases. Dr. Desmond Carson is an Emergency Medicine Physician in California and he tells Anderson Cooper “people are selfish and self-centered. Just wear a mask. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing.” Plus, Georgia’s largest school district has reported around 260 employees have either tested positive for coronavirus or have been exposed. Many parents are grappling with the decision whether or not to send their children back to school. Becky Stone, Director of Schools for Alcoa City Schools, in Tennessee and Brian Woods, Superintendent of Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas join AC360 to discuss the difficulties they’re facing and what they’re doing to keep the students and staff as safe as possible.
