FARE, Allergy Groups Send Letter to CDC Asking for Adapted School Guidelines

A Statement from Lisa Gable, Chief Executive Officer, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education): “We don’t want to solve one health problem by creating another. For the more than 5.6 million children living with potentially life-threatening food allergies, eating meals in their classroom – even six feet apart – raises cross-contact risks and the likelihood of greater exposure. In order for the CDC, states, and localities to do what is best to protect all our children when they return to the classroom, the current guidance must be updated to include language that accounts for these children.”
