Kids are heading back into the classroom for yet another pandemic school year, but this time with the more contagious Delta variant getting more people sick. Navigating school safely will be trickier than ever.

“Everyone keeps reflecting back on last year and saying: ‘Oh, we got through it with school last year, so we’ll get through it this year’, but this year is drastically different,” Dr. Aaron Milstone, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center said as he was heading out to his own child’s first-day-of-school event.

Between the Delta variant and more people going to restaurants, weddings and large events without masks than at this time last year, he said, kids face a higher risk of getting sick.
