Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) announced she will create three separate school reopening plans by this fall. That’s according to the state’s Returned to School Roadmap, which was released Tuesday.

The plan requires the governor to publish guidelines suited for whichever phase the state is in when schools reopen. The document requires a remote learning plan if the state is in phase three, a strictly controlled in-person plan if it is in phase four and a more relaxed one if it is in phase five.

The roadmap outlines several security measures, some mandatory and some recommended, including the use of personal protective equipment by school staff and students.

“The safety protocols detailed in my the safe schools roadmap includes guidance on the use of PPE, good hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting, spacing in classrooms, screening for symptoms, athletics and more,” said Whitmer.

The Democrat governor said she will reveal more details about reopening within the next few days.
