School District Communicable Disease Management Plan
Communicable disease prevention is of paramount importance to decrease school absenteeism, and to maintain the health of the school population.
Each school or district should maintain comprehensive written plans which include: Communicable Disease Prevention Plan, Pandemic/ Flu plan, Operational Plan/ Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan (COVID-19 plan per ODE ESSER III), Exposure Control Plan per OR-OSHA.
OHA provides two types of guidance for the creation of communicable disease plans: OHA Communicable Disease Guidance for Schools and Novel Coronavirus Disease Interim Investigative Guidelines.The OHA guidance should not be used as a communicable disease plan because, though it articulates the rules, it does not indicate how the rules would be implemented in the individual school, district, or ESD setting. A communicable disease plan is required to show how the guidance will be operationalized in the school setting.
