CDC Offers Guidance For Reopening Schools

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Friday its much-anticipated, updated guidance to help school leaders decide how to safely bring students back into classrooms, or keep them there.

The update expands on previous recommendations and advises school leaders on how to "layer" the most effective safety precautions: masking, physical distancing, hand-washing, and respiratory etiquette, ventilation and building cleaning, and contact tracing.
