With the exponential spread of COVID-19 across the U.S., local actors face an urgent and immediate need to access, interpret and rank-order the most credible scientific evidence that can inform decisions in K-12 schooling environments. Starting with recent guidelines from WHO and CDC, this systematic review and best evidence synthesis will apply the GRADE and Newcastle-Ottowa criteria to screen the most effective, multilevel interventions shown to reduce lethal virus transmissions in K-12 school communities and linked populations.
