Episode 49: Cutting Through the Hype of Covid in Schools with Dr. Tracy Høeg

Is school really driving community spread? Or is school safer than the general community?

Dr. Høeg joins me to discuss a topic that is directly pertinent to many of my listeners as colleagues and friends who are concerned or at least interested in understanding how Covid is affecting school from a science and data perspective. We take a depoliticized, hype-free deep dive into what has been going on in the data surrounding Covid in schools during the last few months. Should schools be open? Should they stay closed? What are the risks to students and teachers in terms of data? What are other countries doing about schools? What are the risks of NOT opening schools? Has the politicization of this issue caused us to miss an important middle ground?

  1. Although you bring up many good scientific informational issues, you are very one sided. I would have been more in line with your thinking if you had presented both sides.


    1. Thanks for listening Janet. My show is a show from the perspective that I see. My take is that the “other side” gets LOTS of attention from media and official sources. So, this episode was another way to look at it. In terms of the science presented, it was accurate. How a person chooses to interpret is on them.
