Cases are rising across the country. Tests are hard to come by in many places, or there is long lines for them. Schools are closing again or having to go virtual and that’s not because of the weather, in some parts of the country, but because of the pandemic. There is a sense among many that the country has lost control over the virus,” O’Keefe said before asking, “Would the White House agree with that?”

Psaki then declared “97% of schools are openand Bidenwants schools to be opendespite a surge in COVID cases across the nation.

He advocated for $ 130 million in the American Rescue Plan and $ 10 billion to cover testing, even when many people said that was not necessary and was not needed,” Psaki dijo. “That has all been distributed to states. If states have not used it, and some have not, and school districts have not used it, now is the time to use it. So I would note that we have taken steps to prepare for any contingency, any moment, and we’re working to implement and build on that from here.
