Key Safety Layers

To keep schools safe, we rely on a "Swiss cheese" model. Each layer has holes, but when several of them overlap, it makes COVID-19 transmission much more difficult. The layers are:
- All 5+ in school are vaccinated
- Testing and staying home when feeling sick
- Wearing masks indoors and hand hygiene
- Improve indoor air quality and stay outdoors when possible
