The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has removed documents that pushed to have schools reopen for the 2020-21 school year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The report said that, “Aside from a child’s home, no other setting has more influence on a child’s health and well-being than their school.”
It also spelled out data about the rate of infection among children based on statistics from earlier this year.
Both reports, which were removed last month, had outdated statements, a congressional subcommittee found, according to The New York Times.
The Hill was the first to report on the removals, saying no public announcement was made.
The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis had requested that the CDC remove the documents and other statements after an investigation by the Times.
