Catch up on the past 24 hours

Welcome back: Chanie Stamford woke her daughters Mkinnley, 6, and Saniyah, 11, at 6 a.m. on Friday and told them to shower, eat breakfast and get dressed.  Bright and early, they were up for an extraordinary first day of school: online, and at home. Seattle Public Schools (SPS), the state’s largest school district, kicked off its “soft start” to school Friday. There are no immediate plans to resume learning in-person.

Glitches galore: SPS students spent a few hours Friday getting to know their teachers and classmates over Microsoft Teams, but many families reported difficulty getting on the platform. Some said they were booted out of class calls or couldn’t access certain features such as the chat window or view camera feeds.

Money moves: Small and medium-sized Washington cities and counties that didn’t get coronavirus relief money directly from the federal government were given nearly $190 million this week from the state’s share of the funding. Details here.

We're No. 5: Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, more people have been taking daily walks or finding creative ways to work out at home. According to a study by Quote Wizard, outdoorsy Washington ranks fifth nationally on a list of states with the highest percentage of physically active people. The study used Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

Biden tested: Joe Biden said Friday that he’d been tested at least once for the virus that causes COVID-19 and promised he will be tested regularly during his general election campaign against President Donald Trump. The Democratic nominee also blasted Trump for downplaying the coronavirus and thus ensuring that it will continue to kill Americans and ravage the economy.

Labor Day spike? Americans headed into the Labor Day weekend amid warnings from public health officials not to make the same mistakes they did over Memorial Day and July Fourth. Some officials fear that backyard parties, crowded bars and other gatherings will cause the coronavirus to come surging back.

Death toll: The global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic could triple by year’s end, with an additional 1.9 million deaths, while a fall wave of infections could drive fatalities in the United States to 410,000, according to a new forecast from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

WHO promise: The head of the World Health Organization said the agency will not recommend any coronavirus vaccine before it is proved safe and effective, even as Russia and China have started using their experimental vaccines and other countries have proposed streamlining authorization procedures.
