According to a brand-new ABC news/ipsos poll, 53% of Americans have no confidence in president trump at all in effectiveness of a coronavirus vaccine. That's coming as schools are an ongoing concern. Some dealing with new quarantines and outbreaks. ABC's Trevor Ault joins us now with the very latest. Trevor, good morning. Reporter: Whit, good morning. You know, it seems unfathomable. Today across the country, so many sites are planning to pay tribute to 200,000 American lives lost to this virus, and the country is still trying to chart the best path forward in schools and beyond. This morning, outrage in Massachusetts after a student tested positive for covid-19 and their parents sent them to school anyway. This one was an egregious violation of the rules.

Reporter: In Utah where the state just reported a new record daily case total, one high school reporting 40 positive cases, 500 students in quarantine. Some parents frustrated by the choice to go online only for two weeks. Why are you sending home healthy kids? They are wearing masks. They're being distanced as they're asked to. Reporter: The American academy of pediatrics now with now guidance, recommending in part, athletes who show symptoms get an electrocardiogram before being cleared to play. 14-year-old Jayden Parrish suffered cardiac arrest in the hospital.

Reporter: As the U.S. Prepares to pass 200,000 covid deaths, some massive gatherings like Missouri's bike fest going on unimpeded. 100,000 bikers expected, no masks or helmets required. Anything going on in the world, it ain't going to stop us riding. Reporter: Now baseball star David Ortiz revealing during the red sox broadcast on Friday he had the virus and it sent his brother to the hospital too. Man, this is no joke, you know? You don't realize how crazy this is until they hit home. Reporter: And with so many Americans skeptical of vaccines, astrazeneca now releasing a blueprint.
