With phased re-openings, masks policies, recommendations, and other factors related to COVID-19, many of us have gotten confused by all of the details. And as things re-open, families are making decisions about the activities that they will engage in, and even which they will put back on their schedules (e.g., youth sports, music lessons, etc.) The presenters will help us understand current recommendations, proper mask usage and sanitation for children and adults, and provide a framework for helping families make decisions regarding activities.
