CDC considers 'test-to-stay' strategy for schools - report

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering implementing the "test-to-stay" strategy nationwide, CNN reported on Tuesday.

The new strategy would mean that students and staff that have been exposed to the coronavirus could stay in schools, if they have a negative COVID-19 test, instead of having to quarantine.

Federal agencies have been struggling to contain outbreaks in schools, which account for a large number of community outbreaks, with the administration urging parents to get kids vaccinated and officials imposing mask mandates.
