Student with Mask

COVID 19 RESOURCES

As we transition from the StrongSchools Toolkit to the CDC guidance, highlights of policies for schools include:

  • It is no longer recommended that schools require staff to report their vaccination status and participate in a screening program, if they are unvaccinated

  • Masks are recommended at high CDC COVID-19 community levels and also in some other specific situations, including for individuals following exposure or after completing isolation

  • It is no longer recommended that schools implement physically distancing strategies (such as keeping students 3ft or 6ft apart)

  • Universal contact tracing is not recommended in K12 settings

  • Testing, Ventilation and Cleaning remain important layers of protection
