While California schools have implemented programs to help keep children in class while keeping COVID-19 out, these new programs and protocols can be confusing.

As a former California public health official and a physician in internal medicine and infectious diseases, I have deep sympathy for the anxious place so many families are. I also know that if we work together, we can enhance our collective health – in all its mental, physical, economic and educational dimensions – as the school year goes on.
