    A brilliant example of working around the rules:

    Since early September, Waukee and Woodbury Central Community School Districts have told teachers to get students up and walking around every 12-14 minutes in order to minimize consecutive time spent next to classmates. The 14-minute limit would allow most students to remain learning in-person even if someone in the classroom tests positive for COVID-19. The Iowa Department of Public Health guidelines state that only those exposed to the virus for 15 consecutive minutes within 6 feet need to quarantine after exposure.

    A free to read article from the FT which basically tells you all you could possibly want to know (and then some more) about the potential for a successful vaccine: https://www.ft.com/content/e5012891-...5-182adf3ba0e2

    Overall itís fairly positive but some interesting facts I got from it were:

    1. Itís highly unlikely that a vaccine will give full immunity. A vaccine could be deemed successful if say it reduces infection rate by 50% or more

    2. Boosters will be needed to maintain immunity

    So I guess even with the vaccine covid is going to be knocking about for a while
