Kids back in school important, but it would raise other issues

To The Herald-Whig:

I do believe that it is important to get our kids back to school. Much is said about younger kids being less affected by COVID-19.

However, the issue that seems to be overlooked by many is that if a child gets COVID-19 while in school, they are bringing COVID-19 back to their parents and other members of the community.

As a grandparent, if my grandchildren go back to school too soon, I will have to avoid any contact with them for who knows how long.
