With fall underway, millions of students and teachers in the United States are adjusting to the new normal of attending classes — in person or online — during the COVID-19 pandemic. For college students, living on campus has also brought new challenges. School communities are divided by questions of how safe is “safe enough,” and administrators are struggling to balance the benefits of in-person instruction with the risks of COVID-19 against a rapidly-changing backdrop of state and federal guidance. At the same time, many American workers continue to face uncertainty and concerns about returning to their physical workplaces — or remaining in them.Healthy buildings expert Joseph Allen joins The World’s Elana Gordon to discuss the current situation with the pandemic, schools and workplaces in this Facebook Live Q&A.

Later, we will post the video on demand on:
