As we get ready to send our kids back to school, an important story to pass along. If you’re upset about the kids having to wear masks in the ABSS schools, according to the government, covid cases among our kids are increasing. If that is true it is big news, since this entire time most medical experts have assured us children are not as susceptible. In fact, most of them have said kids are pretty much immune. Now though, they say that is not the case with the variants. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, up to now children represented only 14 percent of all the cases. Now they say that has jumped to almost 20 percent.
The good news is, they still say hospitalizations or deaths from covid among children is still extremely rare. Alamance County kids will be masking up this coming year. The ABSS board voted to require the masks.
