Schools and COVID-19

When to Return to Normal?

About this session

State and national leaders have been encouraging schools to plan on reopening with in-person instruction for the fall. However, many states, including Texas, California and Florida, are still in the middle of COVID-19 outbreaks. Public health experts are concerned that opening up schools too soon will result in increased infections and exacerbate the outbreaks. To discuss these issues, Kirstin Matthews, fellow in science and technology policy, will moderate a discussion with Peter Hotez, fellow in disease and poverty and professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, and Zeph Capo, the president of the Houston Federation of Teachers.
