COVID-19 School Re-Opening Learning Modules. Learn More »

Since March 2020, pediatricians, public health experts, and school health experts at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Bloomberg School of Public Health have been providing technical assistance to schools and school systems around the world.

What we’ve learned in this process is that educators are working tirelessly to apply principles of public health and infection control to schools; they have lots of questions. These modules are designed to be a resource schools and districts can use to answer practical questions about school re-opening. For schools and districts that are already open, the modules can help you to evaluate your current strategies.

By reviewing the modules, you’ll learn about topics including:

  • How COVID-19 is transmitted in schools
  • How to implement public health mitigation strategies like face coverings, distancing, and cohorting
  • COVID-19 screening types and strategies
  • COVID-19 testing strategies
  • Monitoring COVID-19 inside and outside of school, including data schools need to track
  • Communicating with stakeholders about COVID-19

The modules are self-paced. There are several short videos embedded in the modules that go into more depth or provide additional examples.

The modules are not designed to tell you whether your school or district is ready to open or not—community transmission and schools’ resources and needs vary. When you’re ready to bring students back, however, the modules will help you craft a plan to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

*Our knowledge of COVID-19 is evolving. The modules will be updated as needed and date stamps appear on each module.
