Last year, when the pandemic first started, parents were forced to take their little ones out of their child care center in Pasadena, Maryland to continue learning at home. Back then, nobody knew how to stop the spread of the virus except to compel people to stay indoors as often as possible.
Now, however, people are protecting themselves by getting vaccinated. Schools have reopened, and companies that have previously allowed work-from-home arrangements are slowly reintroducing onsite work as well.
Despite all of these, parents are still caught in a dilemma – should they allow their children to go back to their daycare center in Pasadena, Maryland, or continue learning at home? There’s still considerable fear because of the Delta variant, which is considered the most contagious form of the COVID-19 so far.
There’s a reason to be worried about the Delta variant because it is very infectious. People infected with this variant have significantly higher viral loads, which means they have more virus particles in their bodies that they can eject through coughing or sneezing. A higher number of virus particles means that they can infect more people than earlier strains of the COVID-19 can.
As a parent, you can assuage your concerns by checking out what safety arrangements your child’s learning center in Maryland has made with respect to COVID-19. Will masks continue to be enforced? Are kids encouraged to follow social distancing?
