Considerations for Counties Designated as Purple and PreK-12 Education COVID-19 Fact Sheet

Dear Superintendents and Principals,

We cannot thank Ohio's students and educators enough for doing an incredible job of heeding precautions like masking, distancing and hand washing in an effort to keep one another safe and healthy.

Unfortunately, Ohio is experiencing increased COVID-19 cases each week, and as a result, numerous counties are categorized as Red (characterized by very high COVID-19 exposure and spread), according to the Ohio Public Health Advisory System. As counties across the state face the prospect of being classified as Purple (characterized by severe COVID-19 exposure and spread), questions and subsequent debates are arising over the implications for schools and the safest and most effective mode of instruction. 

The Ohio Department of Education has posted important Considerations for Schools and Districts in Purple Counties on its Reset and Restart Education webpage. 

As part of efforts to continue sharing information about COVID-19, attached is an updated version of the PreK-12 Education COVID-19 Fact Sheet. This document includes helpful talking points, sample social media posts, resources, updated COVID-19 data and more.

We plan to update this document every week. To help amplify messaging, we ask that you please distribute this to your team as you deem appropriate.

Thank you for all you do for Ohio’s students and have a safe and healthy holiday!
