Asymptomatic infection was common and potentially contributed to undetected transmission, as has been previously reported," the CDC report stated. "This investigation adds to the body of evidence demonstrating that children of all ages are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection and, contrary to early reports, might play an important role in transmission."
As CDC Director, Robert Redfield, said last week when asked about sending his school-age grandchildren back to school, “ I’m a hundred percent that they can get back to school“.
“I think it's really important to get our schools open,” he said. “As I've said, it's not public health vs. opening the schools or the economy. It's public health vs. public health.”
Redfield added that “there really are a number of negative public health consequences that have happened to our K through 12s by having these schools close.”
We need to have virtual options for our vulnerable children and teachers, but we need the vast majority of students and teachers in the classroom.
