QUESTION OF THE DAY: Should children be able to avoid quarantine after in-school coronavirus exposure?


Missouri education leaders have given school districts a new option to avoid coronavirus quarantines.

The option, called "test to stay," allows students and workers to take frequent COVID-19 tests to avoid quarantine after exposure to the virus in school. The guidance is optional, so some districts might decide not to change their policies.

  1. It is not clearly stated what is meant by “exposure”. But quarantining anyone who is not symptomatic is pointless torture. Especially among children who are under little to no risk from the virus in the first place.
