Proposed Project Feasibility of Social Distancing Measures in K–12 Schools in the United States—New—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ), requests approval of a new information collection to identify potential social distancing strategies to reduce personto-person contact among students and staff in K–12 schools that are implementable without causing major detrimental effects to ongoing education activities. CDC is requesting a one-year approval to collect information. The information collection for which approval is sought is in accordance with DGMQ/CDC’s mission to reduce morbidity and mortality in mobile populations, and to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases within the United States. Insights gained from this information collection will assist in the planning and implementation of CDC Pre-Pandemic Community Mitigation Guidance on the use of school-based measures to slow transmission during an influenza pandemic. School-aged children are often the main introducers and an important transmission source of influenza and other respiratory viruses in their families, and school-based outbreaks frequently pre-date wide-spread influenza transmission in the surrounding communities. Therefore, infection control measures undertaken to reduce virus transmission among children at schools may also help prevent or postpone influenza outbreaks in communities. In respiratory transmission of influenza, proximity to the person with influenza plays a significant role. Strategies that increase physical distance between students and/ or reduce the duration of person to person contact in school settings may, theoretically, be effective in slowing influenza transmission. There have been no evaluations to date of feasibility of implementing social distancing measures other than school closures. Therefore, there is a need to research alternative social distancing strategies that can help reduce influenza transmission in schools while minimizing social and economic burdens on the community. CDC staff proposes that the information collection for this package will target senior education officials, senior health officials, and representatives from the National Association of School Nurses, school safety organizations/law enforcement, and National Distance Learning Association. CDC will collect qualitative data using focus group discussions on: (a) Current knowledge, attitudes, and potential practices with regard to organizing and delivering K–12 instruction in ways that help increase physical distance among students and/ or reduce duration of in-person instruction at schools (including use of distance learning options), while preserving the normal education process; and (b) facilitating and inhibiting factors for implementing and sustaining the potential social distancing options in emergencies as an alternative to the complete student dismissal in K–12 schools. Findings obtained from this information collection will be used to inform the update of CDC’s Prepandemic Community Mitigation Guidance on the implementation of school related measures to prevent the spread of influenza. This Guidance is used as an important planning and reference tool for both State and local health departments in the United States. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The maximum total estimated annual burden hours are 640.

Proposed Project

    Feasibility of Social Distancing Measures in K-12 Schools in the 
United States--New--National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic 
Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National 
Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Division 
of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ), requests approval of a new 
information collection to identify potential social distancing 
strategies to reduce person-to-person contact among students and staff 
in K-12 schools that are implementable without causing major 
detrimental effects to ongoing education activities. CDC is requesting 
a one-year approval to collect information.
    The information collection for which approval is sought is in 
accordance with DGMQ/CDC's mission to reduce morbidity and mortality in 
mobile populations, and to prevent the introduction, transmission, or 
spread of communicable diseases within the United States. Insights 
gained from this information collection will assist in the planning and 
implementation of CDC Pre-Pandemic Community Mitigation Guidance on the 
use of school-based measures to slow transmission during an influenza 
pandemic.
    School-aged children are often the main introducers and an 
important transmission source of influenza and other respiratory 
viruses in their families, and school-based outbreaks frequently pre-
date wide-spread influenza transmission in the surrounding communities. 
Therefore, infection control measures undertaken to reduce virus 
transmission among children at schools may also help prevent or 
postpone influenza outbreaks in communities. In respiratory 
transmission of influenza, proximity to the person with influenza plays 
a significant role. Strategies that increase physical distance between 
students and/or reduce the duration of person to person contact in 
school settings may, theoretically, be effective in slowing influenza 
transmission. There have been no evaluations to date of feasibility of 
implementing social distancing measures other than school closures. 
Therefore, there is a need to research alternative social distancing 
strategies that can help reduce influenza transmission in schools while 
minimizing social and economic burdens on the community.
    CDC staff proposes that the information collection for this package 
will target senior education officials, senior health officials, and 
representatives from the National Association of School Nurses, school 
safety organizations/law enforcement, and National Distance Learning 
Association. CDC will collect qualitative data using focus group 
discussions on: (a) Current knowledge, attitudes, and potential 
practices with regard to organizing and delivering K-12 instruction in 
ways that help increase physical distance among students and/or reduce 
duration of in-person instruction at schools (including use of distance 
learning options), while preserving the normal education process; and 
(b) facilitating and inhibiting factors for implementing and sustaining 
the potential social distancing options in emergencies as an 
alternative to the complete student dismissal in K-12 schools.
    Findings obtained from this information collection will be used to 
inform the update of CDC's Pre-pandemic Community Mitigation Guidance 
on the implementation of school related measures to prevent the spread 
of influenza. This Guidance is used as an important planning and 
reference tool for both State and local health departments in the 
United States.
    There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The 
maximum total estimated annual burden hours are 640.
