Kennedy Krieger is a part of a study to help bring kids back to school.
- Well, New at 7 tonight, Kennedy Krieger Institute is offering some COVID testing at all of its schools, part of a bigger project to help students with disabilities. So all month long, kids at all four of its schools will take part in this study, and that study will help figure out the best strategies for safe return to in-person learning.
The goal is to test 650 asymptomatic students, teachers, and school staff each week. Researchers then think one-third of parents will not send their kids back to school for in-person learning because of this ongoing pandemic. So they're hoping this will help.
