Dr. Battinelli discusses how to keep our children safe at school and social functions
This week, 21 states hit their highest seven-day average of new coronavirus cases, since the pandemic began.
And since students went back to college, News 12 has been telling you about increasing COVID-19 cases on campuses - forcing schools to pause in-person classes for weeks at a time.
In fact, SUNY Oneonta had more than 700 cases, forcing school officials to do remote learning for the remainder of the fall semester.
News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen was joined by Dr. David Battinelli to discuss how to keep our children safe at school, and during social functions.
Dr. Battinelli is the chief medical officer at Northwell Health, and the vice dean of the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.
