COVID-19: Guidance on Preparedness and Response
Mar 13, 2020
Information surrounding COVID‐19 (Coronavirus) is constantly evolving as we learn more about the virus including how it is transmitted, actions that can be taken to prevent its spread, and what effects it has or is projected to have on society.
Significantly, Governor Pritzker just ordered all private and public K‐12 schools to be closed from March 17 through March 30, 2020. He also designated these specific days as Act of God days, which do not need to be made up at the end of the school year.
Agencies such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) are constantly working to address the concerns surrounding COVID‐19 and are regularly publishing updates related to this on their websites.
