Now listening to CPS press conference about bringing preschool students and some students with disabilities back to in person school.
Dr. Alison Arwady, head of Chicago Department of Public Health, is now arguing that it is okay to bring students back to school. "CDPH offers our full support to the phase in plan."
She says CDPH has aggressively investigated any case that has to do with a child. She says they have looked at cases of the thousands of students who are in school (private and parochial) ... she says their cases have been less than the public at large.
She says that the ongoing transmission of cases involving students is 1.
Schools that are in session have been doing a good job of following protocol.
She says we have to talk about limiting not eliminating risk. She says she is worried about preschool students and for students with disabilities and the fact they are not able to access remote learning.
