We discuss concerns about the Delta variant as cases rise. The governor announced masks must be worn by all individuals in state facilities. Also, schools are trying to determine the best approach with classes set to begin in a few weeks.

Our panel features host Sean Crawford, NPR Illinois Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel, UIC Professor Chris Mooney and WNIJ Education Reporter Peter Medlin.
