NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A group of Tennessee doctors is warning that reopening schools while the coronavirus is spreading rapidly through the state is “insane.”
Dr. Amy Gordon Bono is a primary care physician with a master’s degree in public health.
She says that rushing to reopen businesses caused the current spike in infections and rushing to reopen schools will do the same.
Bono is part of a group of more than 2,000 physicians who previously urged Gov. Bill Lee to issue a stay-at-home order.
The group continues to urge Lee to issue a statewide mask mandate and to let science guide policy with regard to the virus.
