RCPS maintains ongoing mitigation measures designed to further thwart COVID-19 transmission within schools. These mitigation measures include mask wearing, social distancing, and regular handwashing. Additionally, RCPS has implemented a rigorous cleaning protocol that incorporates both specialized equipment and cleaners that effectively neutralize COVID-19 and installed specialized filters and other ventilation enhancement products within its HVAC systems in keeping with public health guidance.
In addition to the mitigation measures, RCPS offers free COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 vaccinations for students, staff, and their families. RCPS is the first district in the state to provide such comprehensive testing as part of the district’s telehealth services through Kids’-Doc-On-Wheels (KDOW).
