This was supposed to be a year of healing and recovery for local schools. Instead the highly-contagious Delta variant is making this Back-to-School feel like deja vu. Ally sits down with Hingham's interim superintendant Gary Maestes. He weighs in on everything from mandating vaccines for teachers to making masks optional for some students. She also talks with Dr. Benjamin Linas from Boston Medical Center about the evidence of potential social and developmental damage for kids wearing masks and Dr. Vandana Madhavan of Mass General Hospital for Children. She helps listeners navigate the latest data on Covid and kids and what we do and don't know about long Covid in children.
