We are moving into a new phase of the pandemic moving more into endemic times in relation to covid. This means we will reduce our testing, tracking and mitigation from the very strict, reactionary type rules that were very important when we didn’t know much about covid, when covid was much more severe and when we had less options for prevention and treatment. We will move now to more sustainable ways of interacting.
These guidelines are encouraged in all schools while working closely with each school community. School closures will be much less likely and will be determined on a case by case basis and take into account staffing, safety and the need for students to have schools open for academics, social interaction and many other reasons.
