Physicians Rate COVID-19 Risk Levels on Activities Geared for Children Under 12
August 6, 2021
ISMS and the Illinois Medical Professionals Action Collaborative Team recently asked Illinois physicians to rate a variety of activities in terms of COVID-19 exposure risk for children under 12 years of age.
In a survey format, physicians were asked to rate activities on a scale of one (very low risk) to five (very high risk) and with two scenarios – one with the children wearing a mask and social distancing, when possible, and the other with no mask or social distancing.
The survey covered activities that included carpooling with windows up, sleepovers with multiple families, hugging a vaccinated person and attending in-person school.
Check out the results of the ISMS COVID-19 Risk Survey.
