She also contributed to NBCNews.com, covering topics such as the impact of Muhammad Ali’s death on the Louisville community, Michelle Obama’s final commencement speech as First Lady, and blood donation regulations in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Florida.
Schools won’t reopen in full swing until after Berlin’s six-week summer vacation. City officials say students and staff will no longer be required to stay 1.5 meters away from one another, a move the German Education Union has criticized.
Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, head of Berlin’s airports, said because COVID-19 measures like social distancing complicate procedures like going through security, it will be necessary to keep both Tegel and Schönefeld Airports open to handle the expected bump in passenger numbers.
