Schools around the country have begun to reopen after more than five months of closure, as part of measures to curb the spread of the novel disease.

“Schools and educational bodies that plan to reopen must have detailed communication protocols that include parents, school health teams, school authorities and local state officials.

“They must also have a system for providing regular updates for parents, staff and relevant authorities as well as communicate changes to procedures effectively and clearly to understand how COVID-19 can spread and how to mitigate the spread in line with official guidelines.”
