Assessing Risks of School Reopening in Haverhill

Reopening schools in a world with COVID-19 presents both risks and uncertainties. We can estimate the probabilities of risks, such as COVID spread in the community, based on observed rates reported by our public health  officials. However, there are uncertainties, such as whether and how COVID-19 may spread in schools with the risk reducing methods of Haverhill’s hybrid model for reopening, for which we have little experience and probabilities are difficult to estimate. I have attached to this post slides with information on the risks of reopening Haverhill schools noting the remaining uncertainties that we can only learn with experience.
