Webinar from the CDC: Zika Virus Response Planning: What School Administrators Need to Know
Friday, August 19th, 2016, 1:30-2:30 PM EST
Please join us on Friday, August 19 from 1:30 – 2:30 PM EST to hear a special presentation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Education titled “Zika Virus Response Planning: What School Administrators Need to Know”.
As the school year begins, many of you may have questions on CDC’s guidance “Zika Virus Response Planning: Interim Guidance for District and School Administrators in the Continental United States and Hawaii”, and how schools can prepare for potential cases of Zika. We are excited to have Dr. Eric Dziuban, Chief Medical Officer in the Division of Human Development and Disability at CDC and lead for the Children’s Health Team of the CDC Zika Virus Response, provide an overview of the guidance. In addition to the guidance, Dr. Dziuban will also discuss the following topics:
· Zika basics
· Roles and responsibilities of school officials and public health authorities
· Planning for possible Zika transmission in K-12 schools
· School preparations for mosquito-borne transmission of Zika in local areas, and
· Considerations for child care, camp, and higher education settings
