CDC won't revise school opening guidelines after Trump criticism

CDC willl not revise school opening guidelinesCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield said Thursday the agency will not revise its guidance on reopening schools despite President Trump’s criticism that the guidelines were “very tough and expensive.”

But Redfield said the CDC will be issuing additional guidelines on face coverings and symptom screenings for schools.

“It’s not a revision of the guidelines,” Redfield said on ABC's “Good Morning America.”

“It’s just to provide additional information to help schools be able to use the guidance that we put forward.”

Trump on Wednesday slammed the guidelines CDC has put out over the past several weeks, saying the agency was “asking schools to do very impractical things.”
