Newsom and CA Dept. of Public Health’s Guidance for School Reopenings

0


Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom announced his plan for learning and safe schools ahead of the 2020–2021 school year. The California Department of Public Health simultaneously issued a framework for when and how schools should reopen for in-person instruction.

The Governor’s plan centers on five key areas:

1) Safe in-person school based on local health data

2) Strong mask requirements for anyone in the school

3) Physical distancing requirements & other adaptations

4) Regular testing and dedicated contact tracing for outbreaks at schools

5) Rigorous distance learning

Newsom: “In California, health data will determine when a school can be physically open – and when it must close – but learning should never stop”
