RIDE Outbreak Response Playbook


The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) and the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) worked as partners to release a School Playbook for addressing issues related to suspected or confirmed COVID cases in our school communities.

This playbook provides guidance on how to respond if a child or staff member exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19.

The RIDOH work is consistently excellent, starting with their reliance on science and data, but extending to their commitment to clear communications in all they do. 

The partnership with RIDE and RIDOH will continue into the school year and beyond, ensuring we build health and safety into all our educational plans.
