State Follows CDC Guidelines On Isolation

New COVID-19 protocols are being implemented in Rhode Island public schools starting Monday. The headline is that the quarantine period is being shortened from ten to five days.

“My Administration has been committed to keeping students in the classroom where they are safest and where they learn best, and we’re taking steps to make sure that continues,” said Governor McKee. “We’re following the CDC and making changes to our school guidance that uses the existing capacities in schools, while prioritizing approaches based on data and the evolving surge in cases. Every student deserves a full, in-person education, and these new guidelines will help us ensure that COVID-19 does not disrupt their learning.”

The full details are on the Rhode Island Department of Health website.
