Washington Post: Pediatric covid-19 cases rose faster in counties without school mask requirements, CDC says

Washington Post: Pediatric covid-19 cases rose faster in counties without school mask requirements, CDC says. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday offered more evidence that school mask requirements can help keep children healthy and in classrooms, showing lower spikes in pediatric covid cases and fewer school closures in places that require them. In an analysis of 520 U.S. counties, the CDC found that pediatric cases rose more sharply in places without school mask requirements. And in a separate report that looked at Arizona’s two largest counties, the agency found that schools without mask requirements were 3.5 times as likely to be forced to close as schools with them.”
