UW-Madison can't open safely this fall -- Terry Ross

{{featured_button_text}}

How can UW-Madison open safely at this point. I mean, really.

It just isn’t possible given the numbers and what we know about student behavior.

We’ve heard from official UW administrators and some faculty, but who is talking to staff? Do we know how staff feel about it?

I have skin in this game. My adult child works as a staff member on campus. She applauds her colleagues for the thoughtful work they have put into making their unit safe. But there is no safety at large, and that is what matters.

(By the way, the university staff union is missed. Badly.)

The entire University of Wisconsin System should stay virtual until it can open safely for real.

Terry Ross, Madison
