Safe Schools Statement From Mayor Tishaura Jones

Good morning to everyone attending. I wish I could be with you here today, but due to my

exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, I am taking precautions and staying

home and getting tested, per CDC guidelines.

Schools are more than just buildings - they are anchors of our neighborhoods and communities.

That’s clear from today’s Back-To-School celebration, where the community is coming together

to protect each other with COVID-19 vaccinations and other immunizations.
