As science reporter Kayt Sukel writes for Forge, life now feels like a game of Would You Rather:

This summer, my husband and I asked ourselves: Would we rather send our kids back to school where they’ll benefit from traditional instruction and social interactions — but also potentially pick up and bring home a viral infection?
