260 Employees in Georgia School District Test Positive for or Exposed to COVID-19

CNN reports that only one out of the 15 biggest school districts across the U.S. will be allowing students to return for in-person classes. At least 10 have decided to start the semester with online-only learning.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that “children of all ages are susceptible to” the coronavirus and “contrary to early reports … might play an important role in transmission.”

The findings were part of a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report which revealed that 260 campers and staffers at a Georgia overnight camp had tested positive for the coronavirus.
