A Vermont Downtown Mall Is a High School Now
The Downtown Burlington High School opened March 4, about six months after school administrators closed the existing school, just under 2 miles away, because toxic industrial chemicals known as PCBs were found in the building and soil during renovations. That left students stuck at home learning remotely for much of the school year during the coronavirus pandemic.
As school officials looked for space where students could attend school in-person, they eventually eyed the empty department store, which closed in 2018. They talked with architects and learned it was a possibility, said Superintendent Tom Flanagan.
The building underwent a $3.5 million retrofit supported by the state that added partial walls for classrooms while keeping some Macy’s remnants, like the sparkly white tile floors, bright red carpeting, and Calvin Klein and Michael Kors signs and a large-scale Levi’s jeans photo on a classroom wall. The library is housed in the former Macy’s china department, with books displayed on under-lit shelves, while the gym is in a former store’s warehouse and is still unfinished.

KZN sets target to vaccinate 2,9 million people by October | Witness - News24
The Kwazulu-Natal government has set itself a target of vaccinating 2,9 million people before the local government elections in October.
The Kwazulu-Natal government has set itself a target of vaccinating 2,9 million people before the local government elections in October. This was revealed by KZN Premier, Sihle Zikalala during the first provincial Covid-19 media briefing since February. “Our target for Phase 2 is to vaccinate at least 2,9 million people by October of this year, with Phase 3 expected to begin in November,” said Zikalala. The date for the local government elections has been set down for 27 October this year. The country’s Phase 1A vaccination process is currently suspended after six patients (out of 6 million) in the United States of America developed blood clots after taking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Before the suspension, 51 615 healthcare workers in the public and public sector in the province had been injected with the J&J vaccine. Zikalala said he expected the suspension to be lifted soon and the rest of the healthcare workers to be vaccinated from the beginning of May. “Vaccination for Phase 1B and Phase 2 will run simultaneously for instance, we will be vaccinating essential workers aged 40 and above and at the same time we will vaccinate people in congregant settings and those with comorbidities and those aged 80 years and above,” said Zikalala. Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu, MEC for Health, said the provincial government’s ability on meeting it vaccine deadlines relies heavily on how many vaccines they receive from the national government. “How we roll it out will depend on how many doses national receives and how soon they send it to us. I must indicate that national has never delayed at all. Every time they receive batches, we get them a day or so later and therefore made it easier for us to go to the rural areas and vaccinate our healthcare workers,” she said. •
