Ohio Requiring School Districts To Establish COVID-19 Notification Systems

Statehouse News Bureau |

The health order will require districts to establish a reporting mechanism so parents and guardians can tell a school if their child or a staff member has a confirmed case of COVID-19. DeWine says an example could be something similar to an attendance phone line, which parents call to tell administrators their child will be absent.

Then the schools will be required to notify the local health department and the other families of that school within 48 hours.
