Schools, Local Health Departments Working Together for Safety

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS – With announcements by local school districts regarding reopening plans for the coming school year, local health departments have also been involved in helping districts determine the best ways to keep kids safe, healthy, and provide the best education possible this fall.

Shawnna Rhine,┬áPublic Relations Coordinator with the Southern Seven Health Department, said with groups congregating such as kids returning to school, there’s an inherent risk of spreading COVID-19, but local health departments and schools are doing “everything they can” to protect students and staff.

 

Rhine encouraged parents to find out their local district’s safety protocol and follow those guidelines for the safety of your child, other children, and faculty and staff at the school.
