The guidance recommends schools screen staff and students for COVID symptoms, and that people in schools wear masks. It says schools will likely need to provide masks to staff and students and follow social distancing rules. State Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box says how schools follow the guidance is a local decision.

Following the guidelines’ release, the Indiana State Teachers Association said in a statement that schools should not bear the financial burden of implementing the recommendations.
