PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Pittsburgh Public Schools laid out what would have to happen for a school to close should they experience a COVID-19 outbreak.
The district says that if 5% of a school's students and staff have "confirmed" COVID-19 cases over a 14-day period, the school would shut down for a maximum of two weeks.
The district could also trigger a shutdown if simultaneous outbreaks happen in three classrooms or groups, such as a team or the school band.
Staff shortages caused by quarantines could also lead to school closures.
Over the past 14 days, the district has reported 98 cases of COVID-19 across all schools.
The district's full plan can be found on their website at this link.
