Schools

Schools should collaborate, share information, and review local epidemiology to help protect the whole school community, including those with special health needs. School plans should be designed to minimize disruption to teaching and learning and protect students and staff from social stigma and discrimination. Plans can build on everyday practices (e.g., encouraging hand hygiene, monitoring absenteeism, communicating routinely) that include strategies for beforeduring, and after a possible outbreak.

Businesses

Local transmission of COVID-19 has occurred in California.  We should prepare for spread of COVID-19 in our communities.  All employers need to consider how best to decrease the spread of acute respiratory illness and lower the impact of COVID-19 in their workplace in the event of an outbreak in the US. They should identify and communicate their objectives, which may include one or more of the following: (a) reducing transmission among staff, (b) protecting people who are at higher risk for adverse health complications, (c) maintaining business operations, and (d) minimizing adverse effects on other entities in their supply chains.

General Community Settings

A COVID-19 outbreak could last for a long time in your community. Depending on the severity of the outbreak, public health officials may recommend community actions designed to help keep people healthy, reduce exposures to COVID-19, and slow the spread of the disease. Local public health officials may make recommendations appropriate to your local situation. Creating a household plan can help protect your health and the health of those you care about in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19 in your community. You should base the details of your household plan on the needs and daily routine of your household members.

Mass Gatherings and Large Events

Local transmission of COVID-19 has occurred in California.  A COVID-19 outbreak could last for a long time.  Mass gatherings and large community events bring people from multiple communities into close contact with each other and have the potential to increase COVID-19 transmission.  The California Department of Public Health outlines two scenarios that should be considered in their guidance document Mass Gatherings Guidance on Novel Coronavirus.  It is also recommended that event planners review emergency operations plan.
