ASA HUTCHINSON: I also want to thank you for your clarity on keeping schools open. Your voice has been important from a national perspective. Our schools are open in classroom instruction, and thank you for that clarity. A couple things I hope that you will address today is we need the CDC to help us to have the right standards to end this pandemic and move to a more endemic status. And so that's an important element that we as governors in a bipartisan way hope that the CDC can be helpful to define that more clearly. We want to go from today to more normal.
