MSDH Current Recommendations for Safely Educating K-12 Students

Please read the Mississippi State Department of Health’s (MSDH) current recommendations for
safely educating K-12 students.

Mississippi is facing the unprecedented challenge of providing quality education to K-12 students while
navigating the dangers of COVID-19 in the community. Unfortunately, Mississippi is experiencing a peak for
COVID-19 transmission at the same time we are trying to get children and teenagers back in class. It will be a
monumental challenge to keep COVID outbreaks from undermining the educational process and to keep school-based outbreaks from driving additional community transmission.
