I’m looking for suggestions on extra measures that should be taken to keep staff and students safe and healthy during this COVID19. I work at a small private school/ABA facility (which falls under very few regulations from the state) and plans to reopen in June. I want to put some type of policy and procedures in place to to prevent the spread of illness, and what to do if a COVID case is reported to our facility. We have approx 80 students and 90 staff members. What are other schools doing?

We're still in planning phases here. School was called off for the rest of the academic year. I have been reviewing guidance from appropriate sources:

https://www.CDC.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/guidance-for-schools.html

I don't have state specific guidelines yet. Were still getting over 1k new dx per day here, so I suppose it hasn't been priority
