Small moves toward normalcy in schools and restaurants

A month from now, many middle and high schoolers across the Portland area will return to in-person teaching at least part time or the first time in a year. Bars and restaurants in the Portland area can now open up indoor dining to half of their normal capacity. Are we inching back to something resembling normalcy? On this episode, you’ll hear from two of my colleagues about these baby steps toward our old lives. In the first half of the show, education reporter Eder Campuzano talks about how students are faring. Campuzano spoke to four metro area teens and pre-teens about their last year and what it means to go back to in-person instruction. Then, food writer Michael Russell talks about the state of the Portland bar and dining scene, the takeout revolution and when he plans to eat indoors.You can support this podcast and our local journalism with a subscription to OregonLive.
