Los Angeles, CA – America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) today issued the following statement after the Biden administration walked back comments from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which supported reopening schools:
“In walking back statements by its own CDC on safe school reopenings, the Biden administration has put the desires of politically powerful teachers unions ahead of the welfare of our kids. It demonstrates extremely weak leadership on a critical public health issue and represents another disturbing example of politicized science.
“There is zero scientific evidence to justify the further educational, emotional, and psychological harm to schoolchildren that will come by keeping them away from classroom instruction, yet that is what the Biden administration has chosen to do. AFLDS urges states and localities to immediately take steps to provide universal classroom instruction for every family that wants it.”
