guidance for reopening schools
On June 8, 2020, Superintendent Tony Thurmond released the California Department of Education (CDE) guidance for safely reopening schools which is to serve as the roadmap to work alongside local county public health officials to establish protocols to design high-quality practices.
The CDE guidance focuses on 8 key areas from health and safety to school services (transportation and school meals), with recommendations originating from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Below are key recommendations listed:
Face coverings. Students and staff should wear face coverings during all educational activities (at school or on the bus).
Physical distancing. Students and staff should engage in physical distancing (at least six feet of spacing between seats, in hallways and on buses) at all times.
Symptom screening. School districts should identify staff who can take temperatures for students and staff before they enter the campus.
Last Friday, June 5, 2020, the California Department of Public Health released its 14-page guide.
