UPDATED Covid-19 Guidance for Schools - Panhandle Health District
6-25-2020 (6:32am) – Recently, Panhandle Health District (PHD) put out current summary instructions titled Covid-19 Guidance for Schools, communicating the latest recommendations regarding Covid-19. We have included a link to the entire 12-page version at the end of this communication. In their own words, “This guidance uses the most up-to-date information available from the CDC and emerging best practices, thus subject to change.”
We have again reviewed the materials from PHD and have determined our plan of operation (i.e. Response Plan) is in agreement.
Yesterday (June 24th), we were notified by a family that over the past weekend, they were in contact with a family friend (who is also a nurse) who had just tested positive for Covid-19, Wednesday morning. Their friend showed symptoms that prompted an immediate rapid testing (because she is a nurse). Because our family notified us straightaway, we were able to immediately quarantined the two students who were at the weekend event and begin our cleaning and disinfection protocols. We evacuated their specific classrooms, opened windows, and initiated deep cleaning and disinfection of those classrooms, all common surfaces, and the bathrooms.
