Six months into the pandemic, parents are still struggling with what COVID-19 means for their kids. Should they be in school? Can they go on play dates? Can they hug grandma?

Of course, in many cases, there are no black and white answers to those questions. But host Mason King gets some educated opinions from Dr. James Wood, a pediatrician at Riley Children’s Health and an expert in pediatric infectious diseases.

Plus, Wood explains multi system inflammatory syndrome (which he describes as “extremely rare”) and theorizes why children may not be as affected by COVID-19 as adults.
