What can schools do to mitigate disease spread?

Daily symptom screenings, physical distancing, face mask use, regular/frequent hand hygiene, appropriate ventilation, limiting room occupancy, reducing singing and shouting indoors, holding many activities outdoors, teaching proper ways to sneeze and cough into elbows, cohorting as much as possible, students and staff staying home when ill and symptom surveillance. Regular cleaning and disinfecting is important. Continued collaboration with JCDHE on case investigations and contact tracing is key. Outside visitors should be limited.
