In keeping with CDC guidance and good infection control practice, Granville Vance Public Health recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place.

Earlier today, a notification was shared with all schools and child care centers in the district inviting nurses and leaders to the next webinar hosted by Dr. Shauna Guthrie, our GVPH medical director. This  School/Child Care COVID-19 Check-in will be held on Friday, August 6th, at 3 pm. This will be a chance to learn the latest CDC and NCDHHS guidance/recommendation for schools, ask Dr. Guthrie any questions you may have, and meet Jesus Peralta, our new GVPH COVID-19 Liaison for School/Child Care centers.
