"Focus on what you can control. That means using all our tools: good and frequent hand washing, wearing a face covering, social distancing, limiting interactions with others and staying home when you're sick. Parents have to be realistic that nothing is risk free, but the goal is to lower risk as much as possible."
Samuel Dominguez, MD, PhD
