Why CDC Approves Of School Reopenings Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Although a majority of educational institutions across the country were forced to switch to online learning amid the coronavirus pandemic, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believe it’s safe to begin reopening schools for full in-person instruction.

An article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) on Tuesday reveals experts approve of reopening certain schools if restrictions are put in place to lower the spread of COVID-19, ABC 7 reports.

“Committing today to policies that prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission in communities and in schools will help ensure the future social and academic welfare of all students and their education,” the researchers wrote.

Researchers found that wearing masks and social distancing is effective in curbing transmissions, but said that some school activities, like sporting events, would have to be eliminated to stop the spread. Researchers believe it simply isn’t possible to maintain physical distancing in high-contact sports.
