    6 passengers per boat is ridiculous, as the picture shows.

    Hospitals are being overwhelmed in many parts of Texas, so much so in one rural town that the hospital has set up a "death panel" to decide which patients can be saved and which patients should be sent home to die, The Guardian reported. A committee at Starr County Memorial Hospital, which is the county's only hospital, will make these tough decisions to "alleviate the hospital's limited medical resources," so that doctors can put their efforts toward patients who are more likely than others to survive, according to The Guardian.

    Cases in the county — which has a population of 64,000 — began to surge in early July, and as of July 24, the county has recorded 1,769 COVID-19 cases and up to 50 related deaths (some of these have yet to be confirmed as COVID-19 related), The Guardian said.

    "The situation is desperate," Jose Vasquez, the county health authority, said during a news conference last week, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. "We cannot continue functioning in the Starr County Memorial Hospital nor in our county in the way that things are going. The numbers are staggering."

    Where do they live? That wont apply to the whole USA and would depend on individual State policy or even school boards. Where infection rates are very low, they'd fully open in the Autumn. Where there is increased or significant risk then they will part open or remain closed.

    These guys are in the East, but ot on the coast. They are taking students in in groups of 10 over the summer and training them in how to use online lessons, then closing the school again and switching to online
