Middle school and high school students returned to in-person learning across the city Thursday.
At EBC High School for Public Service in Bushwick, there are several safety protocols in place to protect students and staff.
Both will practice physical distancing in all buildings, and students will be separated into pods for as much of the day as possible.
Face masks are required for all staff and students to be worn throughout the entire day.
News 12 is told if students do not have face coverings, the school will provide them for free.
High touch zones will be cleaned multiple times a day and all buildings will be disinfected every night. The Department of Education is also encouraging all employees to get tested monthly for COVID-19.
As multiple neighborhoods in Brooklyn are seeing upticks in COVID-19 cases, the DOE says it is monitoring daily case numbers and will take necessary action if they continue to rise.
