Oakland County is providing a Safe for School hotline to answer questions about COVID-19 symptoms, the need for testing, and what circumstances are considered high-risk when sending a child into a school facility.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 12, the hotline will be available at 248-551-4242 from 5 a.m.- 8 a.m. Monday-Friday through Dec. 30. Callers will speak to Beaumont health care professionals who can provide guidance and any recommendations necessary and refer some to the Health Division or other healthcare providers for additional follow-up.

In addition, the Oakland County COVID-19 Public Health Toolkit for K-12 Schools offers local, state and federal recommendations to reduce COVID-19 transmission in the school settings.
