Schools, public health partner to help schools reopen 08-07-2020

Published August 14, 2020

Schools will reopen this week – some in person, some through distance learning, and some in a hybrid – and school districts and Shasta County Public Health have been working together to ensure a safe return.

 

“Education is essential for our children’s well-being, and our school partners have worked hard to

come up with plans that balance the need for education with student safety. For schools that opted to come back to campus in person, we are grateful for their efforts to welcome children back with safety modifications to reduce risk to staff and students,” said Dr. Karen Ramstrom, Shasta County Health Officer.
