> Maybe thinking practically opens up people to too much liability?
You make good points about the challenges that reopening with very little fundamental data available about the epidemic and the subsequent cultural shifts that will be required available.

However, my sense is that liability is not the concern; the most recent list of operating scenarios for how we might open here had 11 possibilities. These are too many to think about practically at operational safety level. This list is being winnowed down as more data becomes available (financial and student count data as much as scientific data), but I suspect that it will be another month before there's enough clarity to get concrete planning underway.

Thanks for raising these considerations that we are all working with.
