Posted at 4:16 PM, Jul 27, 2020

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Dr. John Lowe is the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Health Security at UNMC. His group of medical experts have been studying school re-openings across the world and have found that community transmission is the number one factor when it comes to safely reopening.

Reporter Ruta Ulcinaite sat down virtually with Dr. Lowe to ask some "what if" questions when it comes to Omaha metro schools reopening. Check out his answer above to the question, "What if someone in a classroom, teacher or student, ends up testing positive for the virus? What's the protocol and who has to quarantine?"

Tune into KMTV Tuesday 6am and 6pm for more from Dr. Lowe.
