Counties with a population greater than 106,000 must follow an equity metric to ensure that their most disadvantaged neighborhoods don’t lag behind. Counties with less than 106,000 residents must submit a plan that defines their disproportionately affected population and show plans to invest in at least interrupting disease transmission in these populations.

However, the use of small groups restricts the normal operation of schools and presents both educational and logistical challenges, including the cleaning and use of shared spaces, such as playgrounds, boarding houses, dining halls, and toilets, and the provision of specialist teaching. This is the case in both primary and secondary schools but is particularly difficult in secondary schools.


Since the pandemic started, Cal/OSHA has instead been sending employers letters asking them to respond to any worker concerns, as mandated by a March executive order from Gov. Gavin Newsom. Due to the lack of on-site inspections, Cal/OSHA can’t cite employers for any safety or health violations, possibly causing an underreporting in cases.

During the period in between, all classes will be conducted remotely. Only students facing extenuating circumstances will be able to live on-campus. In recent weeks, one out of every nine of Washoe County’s new cases has been tied to UNR.

"We know there has been an anxious strain on our registrants as we worked through our options," organizers wrote in a statement. " As one of the last events on the calendar, we felt like it was our responsibility to continue to ride the waves of change as a potential beacon of hope in what has been a volatile 2020."

At Sunday’s indoor rally, the president told his nearly mask-less packed crowd that the nation was “making the last turn” in defeating the virus. The president made no early mention at the rally that the pandemic was still claiming 1,000 lives a day and has killed nearly 200,000 Americans.

The hosts have until Nov. 20 to commit to cleaning protocols such as scrubbing floors and other surfaces with soap and water, washing linens on high heat, disinfecting high-touch items like door knobs, and ventilating rooms.


When timetabling, groups should be kept apart and movement around the school site kept to a minimum. While passing briefly in the corridor or playground is low risk, schools should avoid creating busy corridors, entrances and exits. Schools should also consider staggered break times and lunch times (and time for cleaning surfaces in the dining hall between groups).

The government has recently launched the Wellbeing for Education Return programme, which will provide training and resources for teachers and staff in all state-funded schools to respond to the wellbeing and mental health needs of children and young people as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). The training provides practical examples to support staff, children and young people within a school.

Whether individual risk assessments are used to help plan for the autumn term or not, schools should, in the spirit of coproduction, contact parents and involve them in planning for their child’s return to their school from the start of the autumn term. They should also contact and involve young people over 16 who have education, health and care plans. That might include visits to the school, social stories, and other approaches that specialist settings normally use to enable a child or young person with SEND, who has spent some time out of education, to return to full provision.

In the state, Filipino Americans total about 12% of all healthcare workers and 11% of healthcare support jobs. The group is overrepresented in lower-paid jobs in the medical field, often exposing them to higher risk positions such as working in intensive care or emergency rooms.
