Here we go: The report on #SARSCoV2 Transmission and Infection Among Attendees of an Overnight Camp in GA. Bottom line: kids are not immune to #COVID19 and can spread it. There were high rates of infection in all age groups.
How an overnight camp in Georgia went awry in the #COVID19 era.
A couple of months ago, I was astonished at 's reckless May 31 executive order that gave the go-ahead for overnight camps in his state. It went about as well as you would have expected. Out today, an important case report in .

More confirmation -- since so many people want it -- that kids *of all ages* can be infected with the coronavirus and "might play an important role in transmission" Report from about an overnight camp in GA. But what were they thinking?
Holy sh*t. An overnight camp in Georgia required all campers and staff to have a negative covid test < 12 days of camp start. Day 3 of camp, a counselor got chills and tested positive. Camp quickly closed. 44% of those at the camp were got infected.
BREAKING: The CDC now says that school-aged children are effective vectors of transmission and infection, based on a study of the Georgia summer camp that was a super-spreader event.
(1/4) Study of a #COVID19 cluster of at least 260 people at a children's camp. More children (who didn't have to wear masks) were infected than adults (masks required); attack rate: 45.4% vs. 33.0%. Of 136 cases with symptom data, 36 (26.5%) asymptomatic.

Have you guys read the MMWR on the #COVID19 outbreak at the Georgia sleep away camp? At least 260 cases, attack rate in 6-10 y.o. 51%. Most only at camp for 2-3 days. Whoa!
Prolonged exposure in large gatherings results in SARSCOV2 transmission among children and teenagers. Poor ventilation and singing may have contributed to spread. We need to keep this in mind when opening schools. via
Think kids don't transmit #coronavirus? 'This investigation adds to the body of evidence demonstrating that children of all ages are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection and, contrary to early reports might play an important role in transmission'

Some interesting stuff from the about the spread of coronavirus at a summer camp in Georgia. It's all in their latest MMWR, which just went live: Big idea? Wear masks, Also, safety rules ... maybe not so effective. 1/m
““This investigation adds to the body of evidence demonstrating that children of all ages are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection (1–3) and, contrary to early reports (5,6), might play an important role in transmission”
The tale of masks and men continues. Staff in the overnight camp were required to wear masks, campers not. The attack rate highest (56%) among staff. Can one say masks increased the risk? Surely not but much can´t be said about the protective effectiveness
And this CDC report should really give pause to the idea that kids aren’t vectors of transmission

What have we learned about camps, #COVID19, and kids from 2 outbreaks? 1 in Missouri, w/ exceptional mitigation measures (many details unknown) 1 in Georgia, without such measures age of kids, 6-10 years old, and spread noteworthy
What could possibly go wrong at a Georgia sleep over camp: There was Singing Cheering 15 people to a cabin No open windows No masks All #Covid19 negative in the 12 days before arrival Then 44% kids turn + 56% of adults turn + Most spread asymptomatic
Not a college setting, but this disaster illustrates the futility of <12 day advance testing.
597 kids in Georgia attended a summer camp that adopted "most" of CDC’s suggestions. (No masks nor, oddly, open windows.) Test results are available for 344 attendees; among them, 260 are SARS-CoV-2 positive. Staff members had the highest attack rate.
My overly simplistic interpretation of this report about children with #SARSCoV2 from a summer camp Kids can transmit #SARSCoV2 let’s use this as a lesson as we discuss reopening schools
