Cincinnati Enquirer |
The Enquirer presented three local infectious disease or COVID-19 doctors with questions they’ll have to consider for their own kids.
- Would you send your kids to school (in the building)?
- Would you want your child to wear a face shield or cloth mask?
- Would you allow your child to take a school bus? If so, one student per bus bench (typically, it’s two)?
- If not a bus, how will your child get to school safe from COVID-19?
- Would you require your child’s classroom school desks to be separated by 6 feet? (Some are doing 3 feet). Would you keep your child home if the desks are 3 feet apart?
- If a student or teacher in your child’s classroom gets COVID-19, would you quarantine your child at home for 14 days?
Here’s who responded:
- Dr. Kevin Joseph, chief medical officer, TriHealth.
- Dr. Thomas Lamarre, infectious disease specialist, The Christ Hospital.
- Dr. Robert Frenck, professor of pediatrics for the Division of Infectious Diseases at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
