A statement from the CDC July 23.
Quote:
Conclusion

Schools are an important part of the infrastructure of our communities, as they provide safe, supportive learning environments for students, employ teachers and other staff, and enable parents, guardians, and caregivers to work. Schools also provide critical services that help meet the needs of children and families, especially those who are disadvantaged, through supporting the development of social and emotional skills, creating a safe environment for learning, identifying and addressing neglect and abuse, fulfilling nutritional needs, and facilitating physical activity. School closure disrupts the delivery of in-person instruction and critical services to children and families, which has negative individual and societal ramifications. The best available evidence from countries that have opened schools indicates that COVID-19 poses low risks to school-aged children, at least in areas with low community transmission, and suggests that children are unlikely to be major drivers of the spread of the virus. Reopening schools creates opportunity to invest in the education, well-being, and future of one of America’s greatest assets—our children—while taking every precaution to protect students, teachers, staff and all their families.

I feel bad for the kids that go to school to escape domestic violence at home. What do these kids do now? Also, many kids have trouble learning in non-traditional (online) environments, so these kids will suffer and most likely need to play catch up once physical school starts up again. I'm told that day care centers will be open to accomodate the parents of younger children. I'm sorry, isn't being in a day care center just as risky as being in a traditional, open school?
The CCSD has failed us (and the children) yet once again.

Need to look at counties and cities within states as the numbers can be drastically different. It's pretty much, but not exclusively, a problem in dense cities where people are poorer and use public transportation.

As for the schools opening the teacher's unions will be fighting it across the country. They are state workers and they like the kush work from home lifestyle.

Right. It seems like that is conveniently lost in the CDC statement. How many communities are under 5 percent test positive? Some, but not many metro areas. I'm perfectly fine with schools opening in areas that have low transmission - those that are not low are just asking for problems.

That is just your standard, not that of the CDC or any other scientific organization.

Oh, so the WHO isn't either of those?

So I guess it's not just my standard.

Done. Moved to the Education forum since it applies to the nation, not just the Las Vegas area and Clarke County School District (CCSD).
