Governor Jared Polis directive and guidance for schools to remain open if they can. (Back-to-School Task Force)
On November 11, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, in accordance with Governor Jared Polis, shared a report that outlined the following “…public health data that reveals that, in general, schools have been able to mitigate the disease by implementing school guidance. Strategies such as cohorting, mask wearing, and disease investigation seem to be working to prevent school outbreaks.
