COVID-19 has been devastating, particularly for older adults and vulnerable groups, including racial and ethnic minorities. Children with diabetes have also experienced poor health. This could be because many families are nervous about entering health care settings during the pandemic. Parents and children are also making difficult decisions about returning to school. These decisions impact the safety of children with diabetes and people who live with them. It is important that we work together to make sure that children are safe at school. This includes following guidelines, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, on school re-openings, classroom distancing, face masks, and cleaning. Many children with diabetes get daily health check-ins, diabetes care, and nutrition at school.
