Is there risk of COVID-19 transmission within schools?

Yes. Mitigation measures such as masking and physical distancing work, but they are not perfect. There is transmission risk anytime groups gather during a pandemic. The risk of transmission increases the more people are together. Risk increases with every step in the continuum of virtual learning to hybrid to in-person learning. When transmission in the community is low, risk of spread within the schools will also be low.
