The CDC will be in the Show Me State this Monday to start a “First of it’s Kind” COVID 19 student study at numerous K-12 schools in the state.

Missouri’s top Doctor Randall Williams says the state pitched the idea to the CDC and that two groups of students will be tested over a 30-day period.

The other group being tested are students considered close contacts that are required to Quarantine for 14 days, regardless of if they wore a mask or not.

Dr. Williams says he does not know the number of schools involved and the results of the study will be published.
