Infectious Disease Specialist Discusses the Beginning of School
A Moberly native is helping school administrators in the state try and figure out how to conduct school and still prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Dr. Rachel Orscheln is an infectious disease specialist with St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.
Orscheln says precautions need to be realistic.
And that means looking at symptoms other than just a fever.
Orscheln says taking a temperature as students enter school each day is unlikely to pick up cases very efficiently.
Dr. Rachel Orscheln is the daughter of Moberly businessman Barry Orscheln. She participated in a statewide webinar last week with superintendents and administrators. We have a complete interview with Dr. Orscheln under the news tab and KWIXLand This Morning interviews.
