During an interview aired on Friday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” President Joe Biden said that K-12 schools “should probably all be open” for in-person instruction five days a week by the fall, and that there’s not good evidence that there’s much transmission of the coronavirus among young people.
Host Craig Melvin asked, “Kids in K-12 schools, obviously, are not going to be able to get the vaccine by the fall. Should all schools in this country be open this fall for five-day-a-week, in-person learning, regardless?”
Biden responded, “Based on the science and the CDC, they should probably all be open. There’s not overwhelming evidence that there’s much of a transmission among young people.”
