The Guardian summarizes a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The report will give responsible K-12 educators much to consider as the school year rapidly approaches.
A report by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) into an outbreak at a summer camp in Georgia suggests children – even asymptomatic cases – may play an important role in community transmission of Covid-19.
The claim contradicts a number of earlier studies where the consensus appeared to be that children rarely transmit the virus between themselves or to other people.
“Our first competition on the books is a football game against Prep on Aug. 28, so we do have some time to see if there is any more guidance coming from the state. It’s likely there won’t be anymore guidance, so we are likely to come to the board recommending we not participate in contact sports in the fall. We can’t see how we can do that safely. It would be football, soccer and volleyball, but we do feel some non-contact sports can proceed, including golf, tennis and cross country. We have a little more time for further guidance or any other decisions from the PIAA or District 10.”
