Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools

Provides guidance for school administrators and outlines strategies for K-12 schools to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and maintain safe operations. Many schools serve children under the age of 12 who are not eligible for vaccination at this time. Therefore, this guidance emphasizes implementing layered prevention strategies (e.g., using multiple prevention strategies together) to protect people who are not fully vaccinated, including students, teachers, staff, and other members of their households.
