Listen to the people who know

Children are the vectors of disease in many outbreaks While they fortunately have a very low rate of bad outcomes with COVID they most certainly do get it and spread it

It's important to listen to the doctors, epidemiologists, nurses and other health care professionals when deciding if, when and how to reopen schools during a deadly pandemic.

Your opinions and Google informed point of view is vastly inferior to the years of education and accumulated wisdom of the Healthcare experts. Make science and evidenced based rational policies. Do NOT make policies based on an  emotional or political basis.

As a physician I strongly advocate to first do no harm. We need to follow the CDC guidelines for school reopening. Over 100,000 Americans have died of COVID in 5 months. We owe it to our friends, neighbors, healthcare workers and families to do this safely.
