At Least 260 Staff and Campers – Half Under Age 10 – were Infected with Coronavirus at a Georgia Sleepaway Camp where Children were Not Required to Wear Masks

At least 260 campers and staff members became infected with coronavirus in June at a Georgia sleepaway summer camp believed to be in Lake Burton (pictured). Camp employees were required to wear cloth masks but campers were not. Health officials say large groups of children slept in poorly ventilated cabins and likely spread infectious droplets in the air while singing or cheering. A teen staff member first came down with chills on June 22 and the camp was ultimately shut down on June 27. Of those who tested positive, 51 percent were children between ages six and 10. It comes as President Donald Trump and even some doctors push for K-12 schools to reopen, arguing that infections are uncommon among children. In the U.S., there are more than 4.5 million confirmed cases of the virus and more than 153,000 deaths (inset).
