Colorado releases coronavirus reopening guidance for schools

Recommendations call for students over 10 to wear masks in class


Colorado health and education officials on Monday issued guidance to school districts that allows for in-person learning in the fall with restrictions, especially for older students, aimed at preventing outbreaks of the coronavirus. 

All students 11 and older will be required to wear masks while those 10 and younger are urged to cover their faces under the guidance. Districts are encouraged to “cohort” students to prevent mass spread of the disease if there is an outbreak. And schools are being told to ensure that common areas are frequently sanitized and that there is adequate ventilation. 

It will be up to individual school districts to decide whether to follow the guidance, but the recommendations are the clearest indication yet that learning won’t be fully remote in Colorado come fall as it was in the final months of last school year.
