The Massachusetts Teachers Union believes that fast and frequent COVID-19 testing is essential to reopening schools in the Commonwealth. In a recent Boston 25 News 25 Investigates segment, Christina Hermos, MD, pediatric infectious diseases expert at our Children’s Medical Center said although she would like to see wide-scale screening in schools, she knows that it’s simply unfeasible. She went on to discuss ways in which schools can protect students and staff through strong contact tracing, and said she believes communities with low COVID-19 rates and established guidelines can provide safe classrooms. With appropriate measures in place and resources readily available, Dr. Hermos feels that some school systems can reopen in the Commonwealth with both staff and student safety in mind.
