Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) has created this toolkit with materials about COVID-19 vaccination, safety, testing and treatment, assistance, and community engagement that you can download to print and post in your communities or share on your social media platforms.
School and Child Care Safety
If your child is exposed to COVID-19 at school or at home, follow the guidance on the CDC's What to Do If You Were Exposed to COVID-19 page.
If your child tests postive for COVID-19 or shows any symptoms, follow the guidance on the CDC's Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19 page.
Read the CDC's Schools and Childcare Programs page for recommended strategies to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and maintain safe operations in schools, child care programs, and institutions of higher education. If you are unsure what steps your child's school is taking to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, ask a teacher or administrator to explain the school's COVID-19 safety strategies.
Mecklenburg County Public Health follows and NC Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) guidance for child care, camps, and students, staff, and faculty in K-12 schools. Visit the links below to review this guidance:
