Closing the schools is a difficult call.
Its estimated it would cause a 10-20% reduction in health worker availability as they would need to stay at home to look after their kids.
Also many kids are looked after by grandparents and that exposes the most vulnerable when we want them to isolate.
Wonder if a more nuanced approach needed, starting with those that can, taking their kids out of school to reduce opportunity to pass on the virus. Schools stay open just for essential workers?
