State Pediatricians Working With Governor's Office on School Re-opening

The Maine American Academy of Pediatrics (Maine AAP) has been working with the Maine Department of Education (DOE), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and the Maine CDC to compile back to school guidance covering topics from mask wearing to clinical recommendations for returning to school after exposure or positive tests.  There are template letters for clinicians to use in unique cases and posters about COVID and returning to school for medical practices to post and share with patients and families which are available in English and other languages. 
Back to School information can be found on the Maine AAP website, including Resources for Providers and Resources for Communities and Families
Governor Mills, the DOE, DHHS, and Maine CDC announced in July a, “Framework for Returning to Classroom Instruction.” The plan outlines 6 requirements for safely opening schools in the fall, which include:
  • Symptom Screening Before Coming to School
  • Physical Distancing and Facilities
  • Masks/Face Coverings
  • Hand Hygiene
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Return to School after Illness

Do not hesitate to contact Maine Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics Executive Director, Dee Kerry at dee.kerry@maineaap.org or (207) 622-3374 for more information and background.
