Session Description

The SARS-CoV2 virus and related COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in shutdown of schools and workplaces throughout the world.  As the pandemic evolves and states and cities work to return to normal activities, guidance on how to safely open schools and keep them open and effective is not clear.  Infection and disease characteristics among children are still unclear, as is the risk of potential asymptomatic transmission from children to adults.  The extent of disease manifestations among children are also not well known.  However, fundamental adherence to public health practices designed to migitate infection are reasonably well-known and can be implemented both in school and the workplace.  We will review what is known and where we still have knowledge gaps as we return to work and school.

Education Goals

  • To understand SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19 and how it is transmitted in the school and work setting
  • To develop tools to mitigate risk of SARS-CoV2 in school and work settings 
  • To implement ways to measure risk of SARS-CoV2 transmission in school and work settings
