K-12, Early Childhood Education, and Daycare Guidance

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) have adopted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Operational Guidance for K-12 Schools and Early Care and Education Programs to Support Safe In-Person Learning. This updated guidance supersedes all prior COVID-19 school guidance documents and applies to all public and nonpublic schools that serve students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 (pre-K-12).

The IDPH site provides access to COVID-19 guidance tools, data, and decision tree information for symptomatic individuals in Pre-K, K-12 schools and daycare programs.
