About this episode

The school year is just around the corner and provincial governments across Canada have been rolling out their school reopening plans. But questions remain on whether the various plans are appropriate or protective enough of children and the wider community during this pandemic.

On this episode of This Is Why, we look into the pediatric evidence of COVID-19's effects on children and what that could mean for school reopenings.
