CDC and CDPHE School Guidance

We recommend the following COVID-19 guidance for schools in our counties: 

COVID-19 Vaccines

Vaccination is the leading public health prevention strategy to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks in schools. Promoting vaccination can help schools safely conduct in-person learning as well as extracurricular activities and sports.

  • TCHD partners with schools in holding vaccine clinics for students and community members. If your school is interested in scheduling a vaccine clinic, please email COVIDSCHOOLS@tchd.org for more information.

Vaccination Rates for Colorado Public Schools

Check this CDPHE dashboard for COVID-19 vaccination rates in Colorado public schools. This dashboard is updated weekly and provides accurate, real-time school vaccination data.  More details and information can be found in this FAQ

CDC Ventilation Resources

Ventilation is an important COVID-19 prevention strategy for schools and childcare programs. CDC provides recommendations for optimizing ventilation in facilities to help maintain healthy environments and reduce the spread of disease.

Resources for School Illness Policies

We recommend the following resources for school illness policy development:

Mask Resource for Schools

The Colorado Department of Education distributes masks at no cost to Colorado schools who opt into their Masks for Colorado Program.  

In-Person Learning

We support in-person learning in our schools. Promoting safe, in-person instruction continues to be a priority.  Attendance Works provides strategies for schools to address chronic absenteeism in their school community.
