Public Health – Seattle & King County (PHSKC) has developed the King County Schools COVID-19 Response Toolkit to support schools as they reopen for in-person instruction. This guidance is intended to supplement WA Department of Health K-12 Schools Fall 2020-21 Guidance and Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction resources with local contact tracing and COVID-19 response guidance.

This toolkit aims to support schools and administrators with
Evidence-based strategies and protocols to reduce the risk of COVID-19 as much as possible during in-person learning.
Guidance to respond quickly and effectively to minimize illness among students and staff when cases of COVID-19 arise.
Outreach material templates to support school communications for prevention and response to COVID-19 cases.

We will continue to update and add components to the toolkit as school and community needs evolve.

PHSKC is committed to supporting our schools and your partnership and dedication to students and staff is valued greatly during this challenging time.
