Thanks for posting. Here are links to the forbidden(!) doc and the decision tree flowcharts

Everyone should review these guidelines, which are thorough, well-thought-out, and quite reasonable. Obviously different communities will have differing abilities to implement them in toto. As the CDC states on its website:

When selecting mitigation strategies, states and communities should be guided by the local characteristics of disease transmission, demographics, and public health and healthcare system capacity. Mitigation strategies should be able to be scaled up or down depending on the evolving local situation.

The full 17-page document:

Seven pages of flowcharts showing decision trees for reopening youth programs & camps, childcare programs, faith communities, mass transit, restaurants & bars, schools, and workplaces:

Additional information pages linked from within the Forbidden Documents:

Within the documents there are hyperlinks to additional information. Note: The lower-level links within the 17-page file and the flowchart document are not functional -- those files are just images of the pages in the CDC publications. The bulleted list above links to those supplemental pages.

There's a lot more useful information on the CDC website under Communities, Schools, Workplaces, and Events: Guidance for Where You Live, Work, Learn, Pray, and Play -- at least until the gremlins force it to be scrubbed.
