The Emerging Omicron Variant, Children and School

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many publications have demonstrated the detrimental effects of school closures on children, families and communities in the past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, there is a surge of Omicron cases as children prepare to return to school around the world. While many children are asymptomatic or have mild disease, it is nevertheless an important problem. As we focus on vaccinations in the 5-12-year-old group, we should consider other risk mitigation factors to keep school open, and children safe.
