Stuff like this makes me laugh. Of course fully reopening would be the highest risk. Is that up for debate? Doesn't mean some won't reopen fully, and that's why so many schools are changing their formats for reopening, to help mitigate the risk.

To add to the acronym soup, the AAP says the benefits of getting kids back in actual school outweigh the risks of the plague.

Sadly, it is up for debate. There are politicians pushing for 100% full openings in several places, including my state.

Actually English: aap back tracked what they said. So that argument no longer will work as a reason to push kids and staff to in person schools.

I am attaching a link for a state of Florida Department of Health Data. From June 9th through July 10th the positivity rate for kids 5-9 years old was 22% and the rate for kids 10-14 was 26% and the rate for kids 15-17 was 29%. Those are very high positivity rates. It won't be long before schools have to close again due to high case numbers. And kids do pass it along to others, despite what some people say.

Here is the link: http://ww11.doh.state.fl.us/comm/_pa...ort_latest.pdf


The AAP statement on Friday says this: "A one-size-fits-all approach is not appropriate for return to school decisions."

I think “back tracked” is a matter of perspective. They are still advocating for in-person instruction, but they are affirming the need to do so as safely as possible.

I'm getting worried about going back, and I'm not one who worries about getting sick. In my state, the daily cases and the percent positive are the highest they have been through this whole thing, yet they are still planning on schools opening. It makes no sense to me. I know the pediatric association said it was in kids best interest to go back. I totally understand the need for mental health services that any receive at school, the need for socialization, safe environments, etc. that some don't get at home. I also understand that generally speaking kids aren't at a high risk for the worst side effects of covid. However, when you look at society as a whole, the common good of EVERYONE, not just kids, to me, it doesn't make sense to go back. With kids and teachers/school employees being around people so much at school, someone is bound to get it/carry it. Even if the kid or even the adult isn't severely effected by it, that doesn't mean they won't pass it on to someone else who will be effected by it.

The New York times editorial board published an article pushing for schools to fully reopen, and, if you read the comments, they are getting absolutely excoriated for it. I'm pleasantly surprised. (One of their ridiculous suggestions was to hold classes outside or in empty stadiums??? to deal with poor ventilation concerns.)
