CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION
Given the recent conversations surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we felt this information should be shared with our school family and community.
COVID-19 Preparedness & Response Plan
The following COVID-19 preparedness & response plan has been established for Eau Claire Public Schools in accordance with the requirements in the Executive Orders (EOs) for COVID-19 signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the OSHA Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19, and the latest guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of this plan is to minimize or eliminate employee exposure to SARS-CoV-2.
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
Public Notice – Determination of Critical Infrastructure Workers and Essential Employees Performing Necessary Government Activities Executive Order No. 2020-21 requires the Eau Claire Public School District to determine which of its employees are considered “Critical Infrastructure Workers” and “Essential Employees.”
