Back to School Month: 6 Health Protocols You Need to Know for Your Schoolchild’s Safety
Check Out These Reminders from the CDC This August
After schools were closed last year owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are getting ready to welcome students back this year.
In previous years, parents prioritized preparing their children’s school essentials. This time, the priority is their safety and well-being as they prepare to return to school in the new normal.
With schools set to open their doors for in-person learning, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued guidelines to ensure that teachers and learners will all be safe from the still raging pandemic.
According to the CDC, schools will reopen in recognition of the best mode of learning, which is person-to-person learning. The agency also took note that interactions among students also benefit the mental and physical health of students.
The New Normal School Health Protocols
The CDC has issued guidelines for schools that will reopen their doors to students this August. These include the following:
1. Promote vaccination.
Schools should encourage eligible students to get themselves vaccinated against COVID-19, which is the main strategy to counter the threat of the disease. This is meant to speed up the return of extracurricular activities and sports on campuses.
2. Mandate masks for unvaccinated students.
Because the health and safety of students is a primary concern, those two years old and above who have not been fully vaccinated are required to wear masks indoors, especially in areas where physical distancing could not be maintained. A combination of multiple health protocols is intended for members of the school population under 12 years who have not been vaccinated yet.
3. Maintain physical distancing.
Jam-packed classrooms will be no more since students in classrooms are required to maintain at least three feet of distance from each other to reduce infection risk.
4. Observe proper protocols.
Schools should ensure proper screening testing, ventilation, handwashing, and respiratory etiquette for students and teachers. Cleaning and disinfection are also important layers of prevention to keep schools safe.
5. Report and monitor sick students and teachers.
Teachers and students are advised to stay home when they feel sick or when showing signs of having contracted an infectious disease. They must be referred to health care providers for immediate testing. Schools should likewise monitor community transmission to protect faculty and students from any health threats.
6. Conduct contact tracing and disinfection.
Schools must be ready to conduct contact tracing in combination with quarantine and isolation of infected students or teachers.
