Posted on 04/25/2021
COVID Cleaning GuidelinesSouth Washington County Schools (SoWashCo Schools) has revised its school cleaning protocols following updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

The updated CDC and MDH guidelines support that COVID-19 is not commonly spread through surface transfer. Proper use of a facial covering also reduces the likelihood of transmission through surface transfer. 

Due to limited surface transfer of COVID-19, the updated guidelines include:
  • Cleaning of desks between classes is not required but may continue at the teacher’s discretion.
  • Eating areas will continue to be cleaned with soap and water or sanitized after each use.
