Yesterday was my first day of face-to-face teaching for Fall 2020.
In order to make this as safe as possible, the lecture hall in which I teach has had most of its seats covered with black garbage bags, leaving only 36 uncovered seats set at lest 6 feet apart from each other. The campus has also instituted a policy of mandatory face masks in all indoor spaces, including my class.
And my first student of the first day of my first class in this new semester?
Walks in without a mask, and sits right in the middle of the lecture hall on one of the garbage-bag-covered spaces.
We are so going back to lock-down by September.
