Paging Dr. Taras!

Sharing last week’s Safe Schools Panel hosted by our Norcal counterparts and moderated by Louis Freedberg, the editor of EdSource. Medical experts present the science on safe school reopening and on the psychological effects of social isolation. The risks and benefits of in-person school and distance learning are addressed.

If we knew in March what we know now, we never would have closed schools as a public health intervention.
