Disease experts criticise school for shuffling pupils around every 15 minutes to avoid quarantine

A Montana school district is rotating pupils every 15 minutes in a bid to avoid quarantine requirements, prompting criticism from experts who warn it could lead to more infections than it prevents. The Billings Public Schools, the largest school district in the state, currently moves its pupils around the classroom four times every hour to reduce the time spent near each other. Its approach is based on the theory that only students who have been in “close contact”, defined as being within six fe...

The clock is ticking on Republicans' Senate advantage

For years the conventional wisdom has been that Republicans enjoy a healthy structural advantage in the race for the U.S. Senate. It's how Republicans were able to expand their majority in that chamber despite a brutal national environment in 2018, and it's how senators representing a minority of the U.S. population will be able to plow forward with Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination before the election, confident that even if they kick away the Senate this year, it won'...

Old Man Winter to overstay his welcome across northern tier as cold, snowy conditions persist
