ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the school communicable disease response of elementary, middle and high school health teachers to COVID-19. Methods: The study design was a descriptive survey. The total number of participants who worked as the health teachers in Gyeongsangnamdo was 360. Data were collected online from September 15th to September 25th, 2020, using a questionnaire. The method of analysis included descriptive statistics, x 2 test, and Fisher’s exact test using the IBM SPSS Statistics Windows 25.0 program. Results: Responding to COVID-19, 63.3% of the individuals in charge of the planning and division of work had multiple appointments. In case of confirmed (suspicious) infection, 85.2% of participants answered that they cooperated appropriately with local public health centers. There was a difference in the appropriate operation of the reporting system (x 2 =4.88, p=.037) when there was a working experience during the influenza H1N1 or MERS outbreak. At the school level, the implementation of COVID-19 responses education for parents was high in elementary school (x 2 =11.77, p=.003). In addition, there were many cases in which health teachers oversaw school disinfection (x 2 =54.69, p<.001). Conclusion: A system to raise the awareness of the responsibility of members of the communicable disease management system is required. Health education classes for communicable disease prevention education should be included in the school curriculum. Also, Specific admin￾istrative support at the level of the education office is required to prevent communicable diseases.
