During the COVID-19 pandemic, schools across the nation face challenges related to three key questions.

  1. When is it safe, based on the community infection rate, to reopen schools and conduct classes in person?
  2. What measures should be in place so that people can come back into school buildings safely?
  3. How can the health of students, staff and teachers be protected and promoted once schools reopen?

Planning for Healthy Schools provides an overview of health guidelines and strategies to maintain healthy buildings and protect people. It also contains decision-making tools about when to stay home, what to do if someone is ill or tests positive for COVID-19 and provides links to resources.
