Die goewerneur van Ohio sê studente sal onder hierdie omstandighede nie onder kwarantyn hoef te sit ná blootstelling aan die koronavirus nie

Ohio governor says students won't need to quarantine after coronavirus exposure under these circumstances

Children exposed to classmates who tested positive for COVID-19 will no longer have to quarantine in Ohio, Goewerneur. Mike DeWine Woensdag aangekondig.

Because of the data we now have, we’re changing our guidance and are no longer recommending that students who have been exposed to another COVID+ student quarantineas long as all students have been wearing masks and the exposure took place in a classroom setting,” DeWine tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

Hy het bygevoeg, egter, that students should still quarantine if they failed to maintain mask or social distancing guidelines.

“Uiteindelik, this is one more step to keep our kids in the classroomwhich is where we want them to be,” hy het gesê.

Proponents of reopening schools amid the pandemic have argued that keeping children at home is bad for their mental health, and multiple studies have supported that notion.

Een, from the California Partners Project, found that shutdowns were leaving teenagers struggling under social isolation and increased screentime.


Dr. Robert Redfield, direkteur van die Sentrums vir Siektebeheer en -voorkoming, said earlier this month that schools are not a major source of coronavirus transmission and has been advocating more reopenings.

We now have substantial data that shows that schools’ face-to-face learning can be conducted in K-12, en veral in die basiese en middelbare skole op 'n veilige en verantwoordelike manier,” hy het gesê, adding that teachers and students were more likely to contract the virus outside of the classroom.

He also noted that in-person learning has positive effects on mental health and grants low-income students access to food programs.

And members of both parties were increasingly receptive to the idea of reopening schools.

Verkose president Joe Biden said during a conference call with governors that schools should reopen within his first 100 days in office as part of his coronavirus plan.

And outgoing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told Fox News earlier this month that prolonged closures are havingtragiceffects on children.


The conclusion is schools have got to reopen, particularly for the kids who are most vulnerable,” sy het vertel “America's Newsroom.”

We see it being done safely and without incident or minimal incident across the country,” she later added. “We are going to have a lost generation if we don’t heed that continued warning.
