When I moved my family back to my native Baltimore City from West Palm Beach, Florida, in 2020, a lot of horrified people reacted as if I was building a house directly on the set of “The Wire.” Still, I was resolute in my choice, largely because I was unhappy with Florida’s response to COVID-19, and thought Maryland’s looked more solid. Nowhere has that response been more impressive than in the schools. When my son went back to in-person learning in 2021, I was relieved by the district’s mask mandates and weekly testing.
Baltimore schools are no longer COVID testing in schools. As a parent, I want to know why.
