Bringing kids back into schools and maintaining a healthy classroom is our top priority, which is
why we recommend testing everyone.
According to the CDC, children are more likely than adults to be asymptomatic, meaning they
don’t show signs of sickness when infected with COVID-19. Given this, kids who appear healthy
can still spread the virus to their teachers and peers, so they all need regular testing.
In addition, at the time of any given test, students, teachers, or staff may be presymptomatic,
meaning that they’ve recently been infected and have not yet developed symptoms—but still
could be contagious. The best way to avoid undetected infections and stop the spread of the
virus early is to test everyone, and to do so on a frequent basis.
