Older school children are as likely as adults to transmit COVID.

This large study from a place that has done very thorough virus control and contact tracing, found that children can be and are vectors for transmission of COVID.  Sure, kids under age 10 are “half as likely” as adults to be the vector, but they’re by no means immune.  And above age 10, they’re just as likely as an adult to pass on the disease.

I hope this will have major impact on school planning for the upcoming Fall semester.
