COVID-19 Information

  • Overview

    Our District follows the protocols and guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The Alameda County Public Health Department has the ability to provide stricter guidance than the State, at which time we would defer to our County guidance. Currently, both our State and County are aligned in their recommended actions for COVID-19.

    In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 within our school communities, please follow the CDPH guidance outlined below.

    Positive Case Protocols

    CDPH guidance is primarily focused on protecting those most at risk for serious illness while minimizing the disruptive impact of isolation in schools. With broad immunity from vaccination and/or natural infection and readily available treatments for infected people, CDPH currently recommends the following:

    • If you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms and/or test positive, stay home until you have not had a fever for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication AND other COVID-19 symptoms are mild and improving. 
      • Please note: This aligns with our district’s general Illness Exclusion Protocols which states any student with a fever must stay home.
    • Wear a well-fitting mask when you are around other people indoors for the 10 days after you become sick or test positive (if no symptoms). 
      • You may remove your mask sooner than 10 days if you have two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. Day 0 is symptom onset date or positive test date.
    • Avoid contact with people at higher-risk for severe COVID-19 for 10 days. Higher-risk individuals include the elderly, those who live in congregate care facilities, and those who have immunocompromising conditions.
    • Seek treatment if you have symptoms, particularly if you are at higher risk for severe COVID-19, speak with a healthcare provider as soon as you test positive. 
      • You may be eligible for antiviral medicines or other treatments for COVID-19. COVID-19 antiviral medicines work best if taken as soon as possible, and within 5-7 days from when symptoms start.

    • Our district will continue to provide no-cost COVID tests until our supply is exhausted. Test kits are available at your school site upon request.
