Why vaccinated teachers should mean open schools

Here are some things we know to be true a year into this pandemic:

Two, children are a very low-risk demographic for serious cases of COVID-19, and repeated studies have shown they are not a significant vector of viral transmission. Kids are more likely to receive COVID-19 from an adult than vice versa.
