COVID-19 and School

The 2020-2021 school year is underway, and we know that kids are excited to return to school.  This year will look a bit different, with some children attending school in person, some attending virtually, and some using a hybrid model.  Schools have taken measures to keep children as safe as possible.  But what if a child at school gets a fever?  Or has a cough?  What if students or staff test positive for COVID?

These are important questions, and we want to be prepared to address situations as they arise.

Here is information from the Kent County Health Department with general information regarding schools and COVID.  KCHD also has an algorithm for students or staff with symptoms.
