COVID-19: Healthy Kids

On August 11, 2022, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the COVID-19 guidance for community, school, and early childhood education settings. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) supports these updates and is currently working to update its website and materials to reflect these changes.

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help you make decisions to minimize the impact COVID-19 has on our health care systems, while also protecting those who are most at risk of severe illness. Find additional guidance and resources for caring for Wisconsin children.
