Please find helpful information and resources regarding COVID-19.
This information is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC)website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019- ncov/index.html. There is also additional information on the Coordinated Student Health Services’ website: www.browardschools.com/CSHS.
The Department of Education has issued the following memoranda regarding COVID-19 Update. The memoranda may be viewed at:
In addition, the Department of Education has been working with the Department of Health and we have received the following additional recommendations that many of you asked about:
- Anyone (students/faculty/staff/etc.) who go on foreign travel, to any country, must self-isolate for 14 days upon return.
- Anyone (students/faculty/staff/etc.) who go on a cruise, anywhere, must self-isolate for 14 days upon return.
- There should be no mass gatherings, which are defined by the CDC as “1,000-25,000 people, but the practical application is any gathering that would strain local resources.” We leave it to your discretion for events with less than 1,000 people.
- If a student/faculty/staff has been exposed to a person with confirmed COVID-19, and that student/faculty/staff has been in a classroom, we still recommend that you NOT close the school/college/program, but we do recommend that you clear the classroom and take necessary steps to sanitize the room.
