School Health

Experienced infection prevention trained nurses and physicians provide free risk assessments and gap analysis of infection control and prevention measures in schools across the state of Nebraska to maintain safe, in-person learning. ICAP offers evidence-based best practice guidelines and resources to assist with mitigation of gaps identified during assessments.
