For many parents, it’s more than a safety decision. It’s an economic one. Many parents cannot work if they cannot send their children somewhere during the day.
Figuring out if that’s a good idea will depend on a lot of different factors, said Dr. Kate Connor, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University and the medical director of The Rales Health Center at KIPP Baltimore, a charter school.
“‘Safe’ is a relative term now,” Connor said. “All of these things are sort of risk-reduction traits essentially, but none of them will be 100%, particularly if COVID is still circulating in the community.”
