TL;DR: With the number of new daily coronavirus cases in Pennsylvania double what they were last month, worries about the upcoming school year have intensified. My colleague Kasra Zarei spoke with parents and health experts about the pros and cons of reopening schools on kids’ mental health. A new study published Tuesday suggests that the actual number of infections in this region was about seven times higher than the official number of confirmed cases as of April 25. But the study, which analyzed blood samples for antibodies, is extremely limited, my colleague Tom Avril reports.
