As parents get ready to send their children back to school, many have been asking themselves whether it’s safe. New data from UConn shows that fewer than 50 cases associated with child care centers have been reported to the state since the beginning of the pandemic.

“You’re 10 times less likely to contract COVID in a child care based on the data that we have,” said Kate Parr, a researcher at UConn who looked at the data.

It was not a scientific study. The data set was based on self-reported cases by child care centers across the state.
