School Re-Opening Guidance

Director of The Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic Identity Standards Project, Michael Kenney, JD, collaborated with Gabrielle Mercurio from the Napa Legal Institute to create guidance for the reopening of schools in wake of the COVID-19 closures. Their guidance includes legal issues such as the use of liability waivers and other liability protections, insurance concerns, legality of screening, required training of faculty, staff, and volunteers to avoid litigation, and other key issues.

You can find their guidance online here.
