Schools face complicated challenges to ensure the safe and equitable return to in-person instruction—and to avoid the resurgence of COVID-19.

We’re sharing our resources around designing and implementing a COVID-19 indoor air quality plan. Within these documents you’ll discover:

  • How to quickly identify indoor air quality issues;
  • Common-sense steps to mitigate the airborne transmission of COVID019 and authoritative citations to support those measures;
  • And language that can be used in collective bargaining, other labor-management settings, or for school board policy guidance.
