COVID-19 Resource Toolkit (Pre-K - 12)

Dear DuPage County School Administrators, School Health Professionals, Parents, and Families,

With many changes to school guidance and requirements from the CDC and IDPH, DCHD is providing a toolkit to summarize current requirements and resources for schools (click to download).

We developed the COVID-19 Resource Toolkit for Pre-K through 12 Public and Private Schools to assist school personnel in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in schools.

Per the Illinois Control of Communicable Diseases Code, Section 690.30, schools are still required to exclude COVID-19 cases and to quarantine close contacts as outlined in the IDPH & ISBE Joint Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in Schools. When schools (Pre-K to 12) identify 3 (or 10%) or more COVID-19 cases in a core group within a 14-day period, those cases must be reported to DCHD. Additional detail on these situations is included below.

Thank you for your continued partnership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please reach out to our COVID-19 Education Team via phone at 630-221-7928 or email
