COVID-19 Infection Control and Mitigation Measures for Wisconsin Schools, 2021/2022
Wilson, Louise
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
Throughout the school year, recommendations were revised several times to reflect what was currently known about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and best public health practices as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). The situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Wisconsin schools responded to new variants (Delta and Omicron). This guidance is reflective of DPI's commitment and focus on equity, both educational and health equity. Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) understands that keeping students healthy is how they keep their educators healthy, their families healthy, their communities healthy, and their health care system able to care in times of need. Students need to be healthy and safe in order to learn. DPI calls on districts and schools to use evidence-based practices in conjunction with scientific and public health principles to keep all students and staff safe and schools open to in-person instruction. The DPI calls on districts to ensure that those that remain vulnerable to COVID-19 receive the accommodations necessary to mitigate their risk. The DPI continues to work in consultation with the DHS while following the recommendations of the CDC to develop guidance for school district boards of education, school administrators, and school healthcare professionals.
