Layered health and safety measures like getting vaccinated, wearing face coverings and improved airflow and circulation can keep Oregon school doors open through the challenges of winter.
Image: Illustrated graphic of a student wearing a face covering sitting in a desk at school. The student is protected from the COVID-19 virus because of the 11 health and safety layers Oregon schools are using. The more health and safety layers in place, the better protected students will be from COVID-19 transmission. Reading in order of appearance of the graphic, these layers include: training and education; cleaning and disinfection; hand washing; physical distancing; cohorting; airflow and circulation; COVID-19 testing; symptom screening; isolation; face coverings; and COVID-19 vaccinations.
