Senior adviser to the president Anita Dunn during an interview on Sunday's episode of CNN's State of the Union said that while President Biden anticipates schools being able to open again this fall, there is no certainty on the matter.

President Biden recently stated that schools "should probably all be open" for regular in-person education this fall. 

COVID-19 is an "unpredictable virus," and "we can't look in a crystal ball and say what September looks like," Dunn said.

"But given the science, if the vaccination program in this country proceeds, if people do go get their vaccines," Biden thinks "that schools should be able to reopen in September, and reopen safely following the CDC guidelines," Dunn said, emphasizing that the president used the qualifier "probably."
