Could there be school or business closures?

If COVID-19 is spreading widely through a community it may be necessary to recommend that schools or business close to help prevent the spread of disease. Public health is encouraging organizations and schools to review and update their emergency plans and consider ways to continue critical services if on-site operations must be reduced temporarily. Speak with your children's school or daycare center to learn about their emergency operation plan and prepare ahead for possible alternate childcare arrangements. Also speak with employers and learn about what you might be asked to do if there are closures or reduced operations at your worksite.
