Dr. Richard Besser, former acting director of the CDC, joins TODAY to comment on growing concerns about the impact of COVID-19 on children as more schools open. “I think this fall is going to be really challenging for schools,” he says. “I expect that it’s going to jump around different classrooms, and schools will be forced to shut down more than they did in fact last year.”
