This time last year, more or less, we were told by our university to warn students that all classes might move to remote delivery after Spring Break.
I remember talking to my classes and one of my students (who is immuno-compromised) going wide-eyed with panic. "I think I should leave," she said, and told me why. (I hadn't known until then.)
And I remember how we all thought it would be over by June. July at the latest.
I remember how a thousand deaths seemed like a lot.
Right now our university is determined to return to f2f in the fall. And as of yesterday, 530,693 people have died in the US.
