The two epidemiologists outlined what I thought was a really smart plan to create a reserve army of Public Health care workers to begin contact tracing efforts and I wanted to know how the article landed. 

I’m struggling to understand a lot of things as I know we all are, and as it turns out, so is Dr. Drake. Testing, going back to school, summer - all these things remain murky. So much is murky.
