An argument against reopening schools for in-person classes is that there’s not enough data to understand how the virus spreads among kids. Epidemiologists say it’s because they’ve been under tested, partly due to mild and nonexistent symptoms. It leaves researchers with an unreliable pool of information as they make decisions.
