As Coronavirus Cases Rise Nationally, Delaware Schools Prepare for the Worst
As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in states surrounding Delaware continues to grow, so too does the urgency of district officials crafting preparedness plans for Delaware schools.
State officials have told districts that as of yet there is no need to make immediate decisions about reducing class sizes or school closures. With no confirmed cases in Delaware as of Tuesday, school districts across the state have primarily encouraged good hygiene and flu prevention practices among students and staff.
In school buildings, all that’s left to do is wait for instruction on the next level of response. Behind the scenes, district and school leaders are fine-tuning preparedness plans as confirmed cases circle Delaware.
