In an effort to keep schools updated on the COVID-19 virus, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Local Public Health Agencies (LPHA) and our communities to provide updated information about COVID-19.

The schoolsafety.net website features an interactive map showing all U.S. schools and local health contacts. Use the zoom-and-click map of the homepage of the website to explore any school district or county in the nation and bring up information about any public school, private school, Head Start program, community college, 4-year college or university. Local health contacts on the map include hospitals, community health centers, mental health treatment facilities, and drug and alcohol treatment facilities. School Safety Network was created and is maintained in Colorado by School Safety Partners.
