Steps you can take
The Coronavirus, now labeled COVID-19, continues to spread. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has stated that it is likely that we will see a significant rise in cases in the United States. Sound precautions and common sense will go a long way to mitigate the effects of an outbreak.
To that end, the CDC and the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) have issued guidance regarding COVID-19.
Please see the links below for that information.

If an outbreak does occur, the larger issue for schools is going to be determining when or if it is appropriate to cancel school.
