Education Secretary Comments on Updated CDC Guidelines

Encourages schools to continue working with local health officials

After the CDC announced new guidelines for moving forward through the COVID-19 pandemic, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona released a statement regarding what the guidelines will mean for American schools. He encouraged schools to keep working with their local health experts as federal mandates loosen, and continued to assure parents and educators that schools are safe for in-person learning.

“Ninety-nine percent of schools are safely open for in-person learning and that is a testament to the hard work and partnership of school communities – particularly parents, educators, district leaders and school staff,” Secretary Cardona said. “With today’s announcement of updated CDC guidance, we can continue to keep schools safely open while allowing for educators and parents to get back to focusing on what is most important: our students’ futures.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Cardona to be led by God as he heads his department.
  • For American students as they continue to try to overcome the education hurdles caused by the pandemic.
  • For educators and parents who are trying to support and improve the learning environment for children.
