HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - School administrators in Pennsylvania are being told buildings do not have to be evacuated when a student or staff member is identified with COVID-19.
New guidance from the state health and education departments says in a moderate risk county like Allegheny, a few cases over 14 days mean a school should be shut for five to seven days.
More than five cases bring a two week closure.
Officials should wait 24 hours before cleaning and disinfecting, including buses and vans.
And every effort should be made to maintain confidentiality.
