With schools in the U.S. developing strategies to reopen following their closures for the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many important health and safety concerns that we must consider to protect students, teachers and staff.
What will physical distancing look like within classrooms and in transportation to school? How will school health services change? What are the best methods for surveillance and testing? Will everyone need to wear masks?
Join us on June 2 at 2 p.m. EST for, “Health & Safety Considerations for Reopening K-12 Schools,” a virtual conversation with educators, administrators and public health experts who will share their perspectives on these issues and more. The discussion will be informed by PolicyLab’s new comprehensive policy review of interventions to guide local jurisdictions and school administrators in their planning to safely reopen schools.
Panelists will include:
David Rubin, MD, MSCE, director of PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), moderator
Susan Coffin, MD, MPH, attending physician and clinical director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at CHOP
William Hite, Jr., EdD, superintendent, School District of Philadelphia
