    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines on Thursday that favor the opening of schools, saying children don’t suffer much from coronavirus, are less likely than adults to spread it and suffer from being out of school.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – All school districts in the state of Florida have been ordered to offer in-person instruction five days a week starting in August but not everyone is fully on board including Miami-Dade Public School Superintendent Alberto Carvalho. There is a lot of concern about the reopening schools in August as coronavirus cases continue to surge in Florida, where 2.8 million students were forced into online learning almost four months ago. “Let’s recognize one thing, Miami Dade is right now the epicenter of the epicenter in our country in terms of COVID positivity, at a time when hospitalization numbers are up, at a time when the number of patients in ICU beds are up, at a time when quite frankly, restaurants have been emptied out shuttered. It is counterintuitive to mandate students to return to school at full capacity,” said Carvalho during an interview on CNN Thursday morning. “The White House’s own plan to Reopening America describes a Phase 1 as one that does not allow the opening of schools.
