COVID-19 Safe Learning Plan

COVID-19 Health Protocols

The WAPS COVID-19 Health Protocols were developed by WAPS administrators and staff members using guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

Though this guidance is written for COVID-19 prevention, many of the layered prevention strategies described in this guidance can help prevent the spread of other infectious diseases, such as influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and norovirus, and support healthy learning and working environments for all.

With the public health emergency expiration on May 11, 2023, authorizations to collect certain types of public health data also expired. WAPS will use the COVID-19 Hospital Admission Level to assess protocols and will revisit these protocols as necessary to promote a continued healthy learning and working environment for all. 

These protocols were updated effective April 19, 2024.
