The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has quietly released detailed guidance for reopening schools, mass transit and nonessential businesses that had been shut down in an attempt to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the United States.

The 60-page document, dated only as May and posted on the website without a formal announcement, comes after some states announced they would lift stay-at-home orders and begin reopening parts of their economies. The CDC has remained largely quiet on the pandemic. Agency officials haven’t held a coronavirus-related briefing in more than two months.

The article goes on to state the following:

The plan outlines a “three-phased approach” for reducing social distancing and proposes the use of six “gating” indicators to assess when to move through another phase. The gating indicators include decreases in newly reported Covid-19 cases and emergency room visits as well as a “robust” testing program.

Some of the recommendations for reopening schools include the following:

  • No communal shared spaces – cafeterias, playgrounds
  • Physical barriers or screens between sinks in bathrooms
  • Only pre-packages boxes or bags of food instead of cafeteria food; kids eat in classrooms
  • No field trips, assemblies, or external organizations in the schools.
  • Kids ride in buses, one student per seat, every other row.
  • Limit volunteers and visitors.
  • Students’ desks 6 feet apart, all facing same direction.
  • No sharing electronic devices, toys, books, games, or learning aides.
  • Keep student’s belongings separated from others.
  • No touching, hugging, holding hands.
  • Face coverings encouraged.
  • Same children stay with same staff all day, no switching groups or teachers.
  • Stagger arrival and departure times for students to limit exposure to crowds of kids.
  • Possible daily health and temperature checks.
