We know that back to school is weighing heavily on the minds of St. Louis moms this year, and rightfully so. We recently chatted with Dr. Rachel Orscheln, Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the division of infectious diseases at Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, about Covid-19 in children and back-to-school!
Topics covered include:
- Transmission rate in children
- Asymptomatic transmission
- Hospitalization Rate
- Mitigation Strategies in School
- Future vaccine
- Impact of social distancing and quarantine on a child’s immune system
