UC Irvine doctor helps OC schools reopen safely

As some public school students in Fountain Valley returned to campus today, a prominent UC Irvine pediatrician who has consulted with local educators on the coronavirus said the safety of in-person instruction depends on how well a school prepares for it. “I’m a believer that the schools should be open and the safest place for the kids is the schools,” said Dr. Dan Cooper, a professor of pediatrics who is leading a research effort with Children’s Hospital of Orange County and the county that will track the progress of return to personal instruction at four Orange County schools.
