The Dover School District is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and district leaders are in constant communication with state public health agencies to learn from and closely follow their recommendations. This is a rapidly changing situation and we will stay in contact with state and federal authorities for the latest information.
Please review the District COVID 19 information below:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based (at least 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer.
