The well-being of our students, our fellow educators and families is our top priority. We will continue to monitor the recommendations coming from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state Department of Public Health, and other agencies.

The MTA remains in contact with state health and education officials. Based on such conversations, it is important to remember that:

Our public schools and colleges need to be taking the necessary steps to ensure that the virus does not spread. Those responsible for keeping buildings clean must have the supplies and other resources required to safely do their jobs. The nurses and other providers who work in our public schools and on our college campuses must be properly equipped and trained to assist those seeking care — and they must have adequate protections.

Above all, we must continue to work together to protect the health of our students and our communities.
