Reopening schools during COVID-19


Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is upending education. Operating schools during the pandemic entails balancing health risks against the consequences of disrupting in-person learning. In the United States, plans differ among states as schools have already reopened or plan to reopen. Scientific understanding of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19) should inform how schools reopen.

Although school children and adolescents (ages 3 to 18 years) can develop COVID-19, most remain asymptomatic or experience mild illness. These youngsters may be less susceptible to infection than older individuals but probably spread the infection at similar rates. SARS-CoV-2 infections in children and adolescents are rising faster than in other age groups as restrictions have been eased. Infections have been imported into schools from the community. But further transmission within schools has been rare when rigorous measures have been implemented to reduce the risk of person-to-person spread. Larger school outbreaks are associated with increased community transmission, insufficient physical distancing, poor ventilation, and lack of masking. Schools that implemented transmission mitigation measures (including in European countries) seem not to have substantially contributed to increased circulation of the virus among local communities.

  1. Por cá os reduziram as turmas e coadjuva-se com online. No superior, é claro. Por isso a malta pode continuar a curtir a noite, dado que não arrisca contagiar os profs no regresso às aulas.
