When asked if children could return to the playgrounds or camps this summer, Fauci said it is “conceivable that will be possible.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study earlier this year arguing children ages 5-17 are much less likely to spread the virus, and when they do, they experience a higher degree of asymptomatic infection and are less likely to experience severe illness.

Critics pointed out that Fauci’s advice goes against what the science says:
