NEW Revised Guidance for In-person Education in K-12 Settings

PolicyLab recently released revised guidance developed by our interdisciplinary team of public health professionals, pediatricians, infectious disease experts and epidemiologists, offering recommendations for how schools, their teachers, and families might navigate the upcoming school year based on the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance and recent evidence on SARS-CoV-2 transmission, youth outcomes from COVID-19 and immunity offered through vaccination.

Additionally, this resource provides school leaders and parents insight into the scenarios in which children can learn without masks and presents recommendations on aligning school safety plans with public health requirements, specifically for masking; social distancing; ventilation; testing; isolation and quarantine; and hygiene and disinfection. 

Be sure to read our revised guidance and a related blog post outlining our COVID-19 modeling team’s projections and what they mean for fall.
