Bring the CDC to the Boston Public Schools

My son is a student at Manning School, and I believe we need a CDC Epi-Aid to the Boston Public Schools regarding COVID transmission (Curley, Manning, Orchard Gardens Schools, etc). Please sign our petition here.

An Epi-Aid is an investigation of an urgent public health problem, such as infectious or non-communicable disease outbreaks, unexplained illnesses, or natural or manmade disasters. When a public health authority requests assistance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an Epi-Aid allows rapid, short-term (1–3 weeks), generally onsite, technical assistance.

I participated in an Epi-Aid in Florida in 2014, when I was at CDC, so I know what they are like. An Epi-Aid is a scientific investigation, not a political stunt. The goal is to get to the bottom of an emerging public health problem. With winter approaching, we need to ensure that Boston schools are safe, especially in case new variants emerge. Bringing in the CDC could help us do just that.
