Professor of immunology at CU Anschutz Medical Campus Dr. Ross Kedl said children remain at low risk for severe cases of COVID-19 and he is not concerned about new emerging variants in the younger school aged children. "It’s different in influenza or something like that where flu really does spread much more rapidly and has much more severe consequences in kids that are much younger," he said.
