CDC Releases Interim Guidance for Contact Tracing in K-12 Schools, Institutions of Higher Education

Oct 02, 2020 | Beth Hess

CDC has released interim contact tracing guidance for K-12 schools and institutions of higher education (IHEs) to assist administrators in planning a comprehensive COVID-19 response. Below, please find two new CDC guidance documents:

This guidance is intended to help administrators of K-12 schools and IHEs develop and implement COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing efforts in the educational setting. This guidance highlights potential collaboration between health officials and school administrators to facilitate effective case investigation and contact tracing.

For information on developing a comprehensive response or emergency operations plan (EOP) in the school or IHE setting, please refer to the Operating schools during COVID-19: CDC’s Considerations and Interim Guidance for Administrators of U.S. Institutions of Higher Education websites. Resources related to developing a school-based emergency operations plan, including an interactive tool to create one, are also available at Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools Technical Assistance Center.
