US COVID: CDC updates school guidelines, Trump wants reopenings

So are masks. If anything, in recent weeks scientists have learned that children do contract the virus, and do die from it. Children, once thought less likely to spread the virus, it turns out, once they reach ten years of age - generally fifth graders - they spread coronavirus as much as adults.

That document classified as "highest risk" the full reopening of schools, and its suggestions for mitigating the risk of school reopenings would be expensive and hard for many districts, like broad testing of students and faculty and contact tracing to find people exposed to an infected student or teacher. "Worldwide studies that have assessed how readily COVID-19 spreads in schools also reveal low rates of transmission when community transmission is low" it said.

The week-over-week rise in newly discovered cases of COVID-19 is more modest this week than it has been for the past four weeks. School closures have disrupted normal ways of life for children and parents, and they have had negative health consequences on our youth. Trump has threatened to cut off federal funding for schools that don't reopen this fall.

The new materials are meant to supplement guidance the CDC previously issued on when and how to reopen schools, with recommendations such as keeping desks 6 feet apart and keeping children in one classroom all day instead of allowing them to move around.

Redfield said it was important to reopen schools "with the understanding that COVID is still here".

The country is deeply divided over how to proceed with schools, with 55% of respondents opposed to reopening in the fall.

If there is minimal to moderate spread, schools should also work to ensure that student and staff groupings "are as static as possible" and that mixing groups of students and staff is limited to lower the risk of tramsission.

Less than two weeks later, the CDC published the new guidelines, created to force the re-opening of schools, penned in part by the Trump White House. Even as he tempered his position, Trump insisted that every school should be "actively making preparations to open".

While children infected by the virus are at low risk of becoming severely ill or dying, how often they become infected and how efficiently they spread the virus to others is not definitively known.

Some of the nation's largest districts have already rejected the idea of a full reopening.

"It is critically important for our public health to open schools this fall", he said.

On Thursday, Trump said he's asking Congress to provide $105 billion in education funding as part of the next virus relief bill - meant to help schools reduce class sizes, hire teachers, rearrange spaces and provide masks. So, we would like the money to go to the parents of the student. "This way they can make the decision that's best for them".
