Utah school manual
There are many things to think about as schools remain open during the pandemic. Schools are not only a place of learning for students, but workplaces for teachers and employees. Decisions about how to respond to COVID-19 in schools should be made to protect both the immediate and long-term health and safety of students, teachers, and employees.
The goal of the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) and Utah’s 13 local health departments is to provide a safe learning environment for students and a safe workplace for teachers and employees.
COVID-19 spreads very easily and quickly. Even if you are doing everything right, your school may see cases of COVID-19.
The types of prevention measures in schools and how much COVID-19 is in your community will also impact your school.
Schools cannot stop the spread of COVID-19 alone. It is critical for communities, families, and individuals to take all of the necessary measures they can to lower the spread of COVID-19.
