The president said he wanted schools to reopen in the fall yesterday at a press meeting. Dr. Kevin Pham, a medical doctor, and a contributor from The Heritage Foundation agreed with this notion because of the data he has seen.

“It’s really an issue with balancing one set of risks against another set of risks,” he said.

He explained that when you weigh the risk of COVID you see that children are not getting it from other children. So it is very low, according to the data.

“I think it will be appropriate for kids to wear masks or face shields,” he said when they go back into the classroom.

Perfect can not take the place of good. We have to acknowledge that students will not wear a mask because they are kids and will want to play with it or will not be able to handle it.

“The younger you are, under 20 or so, you should be able to go back to school,” he said.
