Mississippi Free Press: As Mississippi Schools Reopen, ‘Pediatric COVID Crisis’ Threatens Families, Teachers. “As schools prepare to reopen for the 2020-2021 school year in Mississippi amid the current coronavirus pandemic, though, data have shown that, overall, children experience much milder symptoms from COVID-19 infections than adults.
