In this audio interview, Dr. Kate Connor talks with MPR News host Kerri Miller about how to weigh the risk of reopening schools in the fall.
“Should schools reopen in the fall? It’s the question everyone is asking: Will Minnesota schools reopen in-person this fall, or will education be digital again? To say it’s a complex issue is an understatement. Public health leaders have to balance the needs of children, who certainly benefit from being in classes, with teachers, who could be more vulnerable to COVID-19, and parents, who are overwhelmed trying to work while balancing child care.”
