The website, Rethinking Schools: A Public Health Guided Return to Site-Based Classroom Instruction in the Age of COVID-19, launched May 19 and serves as a clearinghouse for all information related to the safe return of students to in-person learning. It also serves as a robust resource for other school systems and community stakeholders. It includes links to relevant Marin County Public Health information and a collection of the most current public health information, in English and Spanish.
