Updated Resources and Tools for Reopening Schools and Childcare Programs
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated their guidelines for reopening of schools and childcare centers as of July 23, 2020.
The resources and tools made available on that date support how to open schools safely by promoting behaviors that prevent spread, altering how a school and school day is structured, and outlining how to keep the school environment healthy through cleaning, proper ventilation, and other practices. The resources and tools also describe what to do to guard against someone who might be sick from infecting others and what to do if this occurs.
The resources, available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/index.html, also provide students, school administrators, parents, guardians, or caregivers the information they need to guide their decision-making on attending in-person curriculum and how to adapt to local conditions.
