Survey: Parents Worried Children Will Catch COVID-19 at School

The survey was conducted by Nationwide Children's Hospital

More than 40 percent of parents worry their children will catch COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) at school this fall and pass the virus on to more vulnerable family members, a survey released July 29, 2020 by Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio found.

Just under 40 percent fear their children will fall behind academically and socially if online learning remains the norm when the school year starts, the researchers who conducted the survey said.

"It's no secret the COVID-19 pandemic has created many concerns and uncertainties about the upcoming school year," Parker Huston, one of the researchers who headed the survey, said to UPI. "Each area of the country is managing different local and regional expectations and regulations, so there is not a single correct answer to how schools can best serve the children in their communities this coming year."
