Virtual Calculus Class
   Both City and County require face masks and I have taken note of the spaces, even chairs arranged to accommodate customers and patients in doctor's offices. Many places have areas where the new thermometers are used to scan people's temperatures at entrances.

   More than 117,000 persons in Pima Count have been tested by various agencies. This is "way too few, but the effort is slowly accelerating

   There is one area of paramount concern where confusion reigns: Deciding how to treat with students. The president has one idea, the governor another and each institution of higher learning espousing a spectrum of solutions.

   In this age of computers, it is the responsibility of we taxpayers to provide virtual classes for our students and parents to provide whatever it takes to achieve this goal.
