How 132 epidemiologists are deciding when to send their children to school
We asked more than 500 epidemiologists and infectious disease specialists when they expect to restart 20 activities of daily life, assuming that the coronavirus pandemic and the public health response to it unfold as they expect. … “Cautiously. And, depending on the conditions at the time. Which nobody knows yet.” — Andrew Noymer, University of California, Irvine, Would do it this fall. … “Only after our school adopts a model that significantly reduces class sizes and holds in-person instruction only part of the week.”— Christian Salazar, University of California, Irvine, Would do it this fall. … “Out of necessity, with diligent monitoring of symptoms, especially those beginning to appear among children.”— Anton Palma, University of California, Irvine, Would do it now.
