WASHINGTON, D.C.-As the nation's K-12 students head back to the classroom, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is issuing COVID-19 recommendations for K-12 schools.

The CDC is expected to make its recommendations official in coming days, Washington insiders have said. This includes minimizing both the "test to stay" requirement in which students exposed to COVID-19 take regular tests to stay in the classroom and the measures put in for social distancing, which is currently being phased out altogether.

CDC COVID-19 recommendations regarding travel, churches, nursing homes and other similarly affected venues are also  expected to come later this month.

What exactly is the CDC? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the national public health agency of the United States. It is a fecderal agency under the purview of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which is led by Department of Health and Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. and the most read Black digital newspaper and blog in Ohio and in the Midwest Tel: (216) 659-0473.
