The document was published this week, the Times reports, while Trump criticized the CDC guidelines for school re-opening, and he, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos increased pressure on schools to fully open in the fall. The document, many of the CDC’s documents are already available to the public, cites plans to reopen state, municipal and individual schools and universities, cites some suggestions consistent with CDC guidelines and criticizes “critical gaps” in other plans, the Times reports. Radfield said the CDC plans to expand the guidelines by issuing additional documents and tools related to school restart, which “he,” Pence said, mentioned in his remarks. “But after all, this is the guidance that schools and local districts need to include in a practical and real plan that they can implement to get these children back to school safely,” Radfield said. The 69-page “Indoor Only” document, obtained by the Times, was one of the materials used by coronavirus health workers to help local health workers deal with the outbreak, the document said. The current manual, last updated in May, says the “least risk parameter” for disseminating the Covid-19 is only an e-learning option, while the “most risk parameter” lists life-size classes without social distance. Publication of these documents is part of the discussion among States on the reopening of schools in light of the resurgence of coronavirus. Trump has also threatened to reduce federal funding for schools and universities that do not reopen, although he has no authority to do so unilaterally. Most funding for public schools – about 90 percent – comes from state and local authorities, while federal funds go to low-income students with low incomes and special needs. The CDC guidelines for K-12 schools encourage hygiene, blankets, and living at home when needed. In talks with the media and Coronavirus City Hall on Thursday, CNN Redfield continued to stress that the CDC will not issue a new policy or change the guidelines. It also proposed a phased schedule, a succession plan, changing seating arrangements to take into account social distance, physical barriers and the closure of common areas. Many school districts in the south, where coronavirus incidence is increasing, will start the school year in just a few weeks. Task Force member Robert Redfield said the agency’s recommendations should not be seen as an obstacle to getting children back to school.
