CDC guidelines for school, workplace reopening

CDC guidelines for school, workplace reopening”

The CDC posted six one-page "Decision Tool" documents on its website that use traffic signals and other graphics to guide businesses on how to safely reopen. The agency declined to say why. "This means the federal government can not single out religious conduct as somehow being more unsafe or worthy of scrutiny than comparable secular behavior". The CDC had originally drafted the guidance more than a month ago, but it was shelved by the White House.

"I had not seen a version of the guidance incorporating interagency and task force input and therefore was not yet comfortable releasing a final work product", he also said at the time.

That longer document would give different organizations specifics about how to reopen while still limiting the spread of the virus, including by spacing workers or students 6 feet apart and closing break rooms and cafeterias to limit gatherings.

A Republican from IN has just blocked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's resolution requiring the CDC to immediately release the guidance it created to help restaurants, stores, houses of worship, and other businesses along with local and state governments safely re-open amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"If they need to remain closed, we will allow them to do that and if they believe it is time to reopen, we will provide them the freedom and guidance to accomplish that task and very quickly, depending on what they want to do".

Senator Mike Braun (R-IN), claimed the document, created by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention epidemiologists, scientists, and other health experts, was merely a set of "bureaucratic hurdles" and "over prescriptive guidelines" "designed to "shutter the economy", CNN reports".

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday offered a resolution - blocked by Republicans - to encourage the release of all the documents.

President Trump is used to taking flak from his political enemies. If the answer is no, restaurants and bars are advised not to open.

And in that document and others, language has been dropped that asked if the organization is in a community that is still requiring significant disease mitigation.

Numerous changes provide more wiggle room than what was in the initial versions.

Like businesses and schools, churches are encouraged to monitor staff for symptoms. The new guidelines add "as feasible" to the end.

The lists include steps like "promote healthy hygiene practices such as hand washing, enforce social distancing and always have employees wear a face coverings".
