#COVID19 I have been consistently for doing the right thing based on the numbers, and the data do not support the shutdown of schools in NYC. If they exist, let's see them. The Washington Post linked their home page to this article (link below). They agree today with #CDC Director #Redfield's statement yesterday I shared with you that schools are not a significant part of the #COVID19 transmission problem - kids wear masks, sit 6 feet apart, and are unlikely to die or have complications vs. older adults (those with certain conditions should be protected, and yes, there are rare case outliers among kids - if you want zero risk, home school would be the choice for your family). Public health has to be run by the numbers, not by feelings about numbers, or by rare health events. Ref. thelily.com/nyc-schools-shu...
