Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) into US communities. Our schools play an important role in this effort. Through collaboration and coordination with the local health department, we will work to protect the whole school community, including those with special health needs. School plans will be designed to minimize disruption to teaching and learning and protect students and staff. Our plans build on everyday practices (e.g. encouraging hand hygiene, monitoring absenteeism and communicating routinely) that include strategies for before, during and after a possible outbreak.
