Dear Friend,
 
As we hear questions about reopening schools, we should look at the number of Covid-19 fatalities to determine the level of danger to our children. In Texas, we've verified that at least 1,691 kids under the age 19 contracted Covid-19, but not one child has died. The flu, on the other hand, has killed eight children this year

Furthermore, when considering the health of our teachers, school employees, and administrators, we are hearing that children may be the least contagious individuals with this virus. You can watch the video below from Dr. Kelly Victory that explains this point in her thoughtful overview of the virus.
