US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield is relying on a data tracker called theCovid-19 School Response Dashboardto back up his recommendations to keep kids in school as much as possible, a CDC spokesperson said Tuesday.

The tracker is the brainchild of Brown University economist Emily Oster. It shows data on more than 8.9 million students, including four million attending in person. It currently shows a daily coronavirus case rate of 17 per 100,000 students – far below a 1% rate. Staff case rates are at 27 per 100,000, according to the dashboard.

"Dr. Redfield believes school can be one of the safest places for K-12 youth during the Covid-19 pandemic, and that the risk of closing K-12 schools outweighs the risks of keeping them open," the spokesperson told CNN."Beyond helping ensure educational advancement, K-12 schools offer nutrition, mental health, socialization, and other services and experiences that are critical for our nation’s youth," they added.

Last week, Redfield told a White House coronavirus task force briefing that there was"extensive data" showing children can attend K through 12 schools in person safely. But he did not give details on what that data was."Dr. Redfield was referring to early evidence from an ongoing Brown University analysis – as well as observational reports that CDC has received from school districts across the country – that suggests Covid-19 is not spreading at high levels inside of K-12 schools during instruction," the CDC spokesperson said.

"Some extracurricular activities might pose an increased risk of transmission, particularly if physical distance is not maintained and face masks are not worn. CDC will also be analyzing data on school transmission and will release its findings when they are available."

The Covid-19 School Response Dashboard is supported by Brown but also by the School Superintendents Association, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and the National Association of Elementary School Principals. Software company Qualtrics manages the website and data.

"Dr. Redfield encourages communities to make decisions about in-person learning based upon transmission levels in the community and also within schools’ educational settings, which can be much lower than transmission levels within a community," the spokesperson added.

Impeachment needed to bar Trump from running for federal office: Rep. Joaquin Castro

Reps. Joaquin Castro and Peter Meijer appear on ABC's 'This Week.'

He isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed that’s for sure I won't listen to anything from that administration anymore. It's all lies or has ulterior motives for tRump. Suicide is his solution it appears. With that I guess it's your right. Idiot in the white house bullying people into doing things that benefit only him.

Nothing new! From 14 to 7 to 10 days. Definitely not Trumps idea. Very logical. Probably not enough death in US in Trump's opinion. He wants to improve his score. He is so weird and so twisted that hi will to put Biden in bad shape for transition make him kill more people. I want to understand. Is a blowjob a better reason to impeach a Pdt?

How many more people does he want to die? The 8 million that voted him out? He is a demented lunatic. How much damage is the GOP going to allow the psycho to do before they take him out in a straight jacket? Lol. Hurry up and get this administration out!! This pandemic should be its main concern.President Trump

What an evil brute! Why’s is Trump not concerned anymore with 73000000,who voted for him,am just asking politely As others have said, the CDC actually recommended shortening the quarantine window previously. Unless this departs from that guidance, I’m not sure it’s really “news” and nothing to be attributed to the clown.

Per CDC recommendations. Do you EVER tell the truth and the whole story when “reporting” any more? How will you get trust back? 🤣 But the reason is because people won't keep the 14 day one..even though doctors say it often doesn't show up for 14 days...all the wrong reasons as usual See but this is where I don’t understand the reporting CNN, because I got something from another news source today that said the CDC said this exact same thing. So who really said it?

I believe 45 wants as many people to die as possible. That way he can say he survived a deadly disease that killed so many, thus saving his brand. He is trying to kill more people to make Biden look bad. Do not believe his ridiculous claims!! He is a total liar and has no compassion for the American people!!

Why is this even up for discussion? If anything increase the time God is going to deal with Trump and he is going to see all of this again in a bad way because one thing for sure you can't keep mistreating God's people Which kind of Weed do Trump uses please.. L H O If it's 100% safe, then why not. Oh,has Don left the golf course, what a inconsiderate being

Inauguration December 1, 2020! His azz can't be gone soon enough. He is the poster child for (the mall is open nobody is shopping) Are you freaking kidding me? People are sick and dying.. That's ass backwards.... Studies have shown that a longer quarantine may be smarter, as sometimes it is 21 days before the infection is no longer present and there is a negative test.... Idiot move.... 14 days is barely long enough to begin with...

I guess this is going to be a way of killing off more people. Trump is trying to do any and everything to make President-Elect Biden have a hard time grasping control when he takes reign in office. Ignorance at its finest They’ve never had a recommended amount of quarantine time to my knowledge ...hell they didn’t even recommend masks.

Trump should go in isolating for a life time Great super fantastic, haven't your administration killed enough isn't trump happy with his body count yet his killing fields arnt enough his slaughter of the lamb's not enough, madness utterly disturbing and abhorrent Trump just get packing. You seem to want to always get a last lick in ! Who are you to shorten anything ! We want advice from you after hundreds of thousands have died and millions now infected ?!!!!!! No way !!!!

Sorry, dude that is the job of the CDC, remember DT is a lame-duck president 🤨 Pop pop Trump is a complete moron, can’t wait to see him getting kicked out of the White House. Did they get permission from the virus first? I think it is time to offer a reward to rub pur the Trump clan We have been told by our local health Dept it is now 10 days rather than 14

This President is and will always be Reckless with the lives of Americans! Such an Idiot! Come on January 20th! Good thing is we already know it’s 10 to 14 days quarantine so just continue to do so 🙌🏽🙌🏽 If you would do research instead of trusting the media, it was the CDC and it’s for 10 days instead of 14. And it’s being considered, not officially changed.

As weas I He has totally lost his mind now he don't give a rats about the American people Still quietly killing Americans It's like they are doing everything in their power to ensure that the Virus spreads as much as possible. They are really trying to kill the people. What about science do they not understand?

The CDC did this, not the trump admin. Another false headline by CNN which its followers totally believe hook line and sinker without researching. What else is new though. Hopefully to the shortest possible period. I like reading these tweets, everytime it only reminds me it doesn't matter where you are they're stupid people all over the world. Especially the ones that voted for a guy not because he's better but only because they don't like the way the other guy acts. Sheer stupidity!!!!!!!

Raise your hand if you think that Donald Trump needs to be removed from office immediately. Fun Fact: seasonal flu kills 25k-60k a year in US Covid in 6 months 260k. If yall think this is still a joke, keep laughing Dudes an idiot PEOPLE You Better Start Using Your HEAD, 45 Is CRAZY. He is twisted ..must be so much tv exposure he thinks he plays a doctor on tv

Is he trying to kill all of us on his way out? Actually the cdc is considering making the shorter quarantine time, Trump may consider their recommendation We are not going to listen to anything he has to say. His reputation and credence is shot. He just need to keep golfing as he's been doing until 1/20/2021.

What difference does it make? Trump people aren't quarantining anyway. Lol like... we would listen to the President who caught COVID himself for health guidance 🤣 Its a flu. Stay home if you are high risk. Move along sheep... If there is a doctor putting his name in this he needs to loose his license He’ll soon be out of work - so nobody cares what he says or thinks - they had the whole year to mess things up badly, and boy! Did they do it very well...

Because he can’t have the whole White House staff in quarantine that long The PA guidelines are shorter, not sure where they got their info from but I’d guess the Assistant Secretary for Health has the same data. They are objectively pro coronavirus. What would they know regarding the pandemic is there someone they want at their Christmas party but must quarantine there a real joke

Cool, luckily if its coming from this administration i know to ignore it. Why? The adults are going to out the rules back in place after January 20. So just go Why? Do people ever give reasons for doing things that affect 300 million people? What a horrible idea Why would they do that? Is he trying to kill more people? Is there anyone in the Trump administration with any sense? I think the whole bunch of them are crazy!

I think it's a bad idea. Most cases take 2 weeks before showing symptoms. Shorter quarantine times will cause people to believe they aren't ill and increase chances of them spreading Covid to others. Keep the quarantine times the same or increase them but don't shorten them I’m not sure how much trump administration knows about COVID-19 their advice shouldn’t be adhered to

Proof realDonaldTrump has turned a medical-related issue into a political issue. It is fourteen days for a reason, DementiaDon. 10 to 14 days is the incubation period for COVID-19; if you don't have symptoms in 14 days, chances are that you are in the clear. each time the White House puts out something. the world shakes its head and holds its head in shame at the fucking stupid ideas that comes from in the White House

Public Health in Canada is advising people that they are ok to stop isolation approximately 10 days after a positive test. If there is anything we learned... is this administration is inept to make decisions based on scientific data and rationale. He should & his adm should just stfu until they thankfully leave. No one gives af what they say.

They are literally obsolete. We don't listen to them, we listen to President-elect Biden's team now. Nobody cares what this administration has to say anymore. Let’s get some recommendations from Joe Biden’s Coronavirus task force please. Because the big Orange baby wants to kill as many people as he can since it’s the only power he still has left🤬

The saying “Always back the horse called Self Interest” has never been more poignant to sitting Republicans than now. Their own desperate attempts to protect themselves, their futures and not push back Trump demonstrates their ineffective ability to be truly loyal to the country! Actually the damn CDC said this!!!

FYI...7-10 DAYS. This is why companies often don’t let employees work after the give a 2 weeks notice. Not only does he not care enough to even do the job at this point, but he’s actively trying to cause harm to those who fired him. He needs to be removed. what a bunch of idiots Like you haven't killed enough people already..go golf or something

It will all disappear when joe gets in, polasse will have it cut off. ONLY his cult cares. Nobody in their right mind believes anything from this administration. He will do anything to hand Biden and Harris a bag of SH%?. This way he can pontificate from the sidelines and continue to stir up the racist parts of America. So absurd! And this is what patriotism looks like? No way!

We should consider shortening Trump’s presidency instead. Umm sure let’s go with that
