I think I read that an entire school will have to quarantine for two weeks as soon as there are two positives. So I don’t have much hope things will stay open for long.

New York is the gold standard for controlling the virus but there are still too many known unknowns and we’re just starting to learn how the virus works with kids.

For young kids to get back in school is critical but not at the risk of infecting teachers, staff, guards, care providers etc. I don’t think we’ll see a uncontrollable spike but case rates will go up.

It feels like everyone has gotten so down on advertising. You can still make great work for great brands at great agencies. You can still do things you’re proud of. And fill your portfolios with beautiful things. And have great impact. And collect shiny awards and enjoy great after parties after it. And see your commercials on TV during the Super Bowl. It’s still a great way to make a living if done right. And craft services is still tasty. You just have to make the right career moves.
