Why are Michigan classrooms reopening even though the pandemic is far from over? Dr. Debra Furr-Holden weighs in from a public health perspective. “Anything that we do that increases human-to-human contact is going to increase the spread of this virus. That’s just public health 101. I think what we’re realizing is the tremendous toll that being out of the classroom is taking on kids learning, and on many other vital needs that get fulfilled when they go to school."
