NEWPORT—COVID is once again going to become an issue, said City School Board member David Perryman during a July 18 meeting at Newport Grammar School.

“You can just about plan on it,” Perryman said. “This variant is very transmissible, and nobody’s really doing anything to stop it so we’ve got the perfect storm going here, and the reason I’m bringing that up is the teachers are going to be the ones that are going to get really dinged, here, if we don’t have some kind of plan.”
