Georgia leaders won't try to delay start of in-person school
schools reopening
Protesters hold up signs asking for a safety-first policy in Oconee County schools during a "School Safety First Rally" at the Oconee County Board of Education in Watkinsville, Ga., on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. Parents and teachers expressed their concerns about teachers and students not having to be tested for COVID-19 before returning to school and there being no mandatory mask policy. Parents have also formed a Facebook group Safety First – Reopening Schools and are circulating a petition demanding that a group of teachers and parents be formed to be part of creating the guideline for the reopening process.
