This question of how much risk is acceptable is a really tricky one. One thing I know administrators are talking about: What will kids do if they are NOT on campus? Can we really expect 18-21 yr-olds to maintain social distance? Being on campus is likely more risky, but how much more.
What about the risk to professors? I've heard about schools considering putting plexiglass shields between faculty and students. Or having students in class but professors remote!
(ps. My daughter graduated Reed a few years ago. Portland is a great place to visit)
