The Learning Policy Institute released a brief on multilayered mitigation examples for school reopenings in the state of California. Their preliminary research highlights important models and practices to ensure that learning can continue effectively to keep schools open and students, staff, and their families safe.

Examples include masking, vaccination, testing, contact tracing, quarantining, handwashing, and ventilation. This brief is part of a Learning Policy Institute initiative to disseminate key public health research and reopening and recovery strategies to educators and policymakers.
