Last night – when talking with a second-grade student about the realities of COVID – President Biden said that kids aren’t likely to get COVID and unlikely to pass it on to adults.

“Children aren’t the people most likely to get COVID.” 

“You’re the safest group of people in the whole world, number one.

“Number two, you’re not likely be able to be exposed to something and spread it to Mommy or Daddy.”

President Biden’s observation sounds a lot like recent guidance:

Politico: “Fauci: “Non-workable’ to vaccinate teachers before schools open.”

CNBC: “CDC director says schools can safely reopen without vaccinating teachers.”

WaPo: “CDC finds scant spread of coronavirus in schools with precautions in place.”

If President Biden finally admits to believing “the science,” then why are millions of kids still stuck at home, learning from behind screens?
