Open Source Medical Supplies is excited to announce that we have just completed a study of international best practices for going back to school in person safely after reviewing over 81 public health and educational resources from across the globe. We then created a Back To School Guide that’s full of COVID-19 risk-mitigation strategies for educators, administrators, students and parents, that are in active use all over the world.
Crowded schools with poor ventilation represent some of the highest-risk places for COVID-19 transmission. We hope this guide helps educators and administrators consider the wide variety of education-focused public health strategies available to help reduce transmission risk and reduce outbreak severity, in order to keep our kids, families, school staff, and communities safer.
Please share this guide far and wide with those who may be looking for resources and techniques to go back to school in person!
