Younger elementary schools children, mask wearing by all, including students, social distancing, and revamped HVAC Are some of the recommendations.
Most interesting is that it should be a community decision based on infection rates, infrastructure, staffing etc. Keep mandates And funding threats out of the decision making.
A question in my mind is how to do social distancing in a class that might have held 40 students pre-COVID, and now must cut that by at least half. Who goes and who stays?
Studies on how infectious children are have been inconclusive so far. We might find out in a month how well it goes.
The irony is that schools are also day care and nutrition centers for many, especially low income areas. That would free up employees returning to work. Of course subsidized child care services would do that now. But I digress.
