Education-Related Guidance for Illinois Schools and School Districts Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19 Last updated: March 12, 2020 ISBE is monitoring the rapidly changing coronavirus/COVID-19 health issue in our state, nation, and across the world. ISBE is working closely with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Illinois Emergency Management Agency, the Governor’s Office, the General Assembly, and stakeholders to address all education issues related to the virus. ISBE is actively updating this guidance as authorities learn more about the virus and its impact on the state. As with any newly emerging infectious disease, knowledge evolves over time. ISBE strongly encourages districts to check these guidance resources frequently for potential updates.
Where can the most up-to-date resources and guidance on COVID-19 be found? The U.S. Department of Education has resources linked directly to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at www.ed.gov/coronavirus. Further, current IDPH resources can be accessed at dph.illinois.gov/topics-services/diseases-and-conditions/diseases-a-zlist/coronavirus. ISBE strongly encourages districts to establish open lines of communication with their local health departments.
