“There’s data out there, there’s scientific evidence now of who this affects and who it doesn’t, and kids are the least likely to have a problem with this.
“These kids have got to get back to school. They’re at the lowest risk possible, and if they do get COVID-19, which they will — and they will when they go to school — they’re not going to the hospitals.
“They’re not going to have to sit in doctor’s offices They’re going to go home and they’re going to get over it.” – Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.

.@GovParsonMO has already accepted that your kids and families will be exposed to COVID-19 when schools reopen. But it doesn’t stop there. Teachers, bus drivers, janitors, and so many more are also at risk. We need a plan that keeps every Missourian safe. https://t.co/og1UAmkGC6
