Masks, particularly high-quality and well-fitting masks (PDF), remain highly effective, inexpensive, and dynamic tools to protect oneself and mitigate transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory pathogens.
- Required Actions
- No person can be prevented from wearing a mask as a condition of participation in an activity or entry into a school, unless wearing a mask would pose a safety hazard (e.g., water sports).
- Schools must develop and implement local protocols to provide masks to students who inadvertently fail to bring a face covering to school and desire to use one.
- Recommended Actions
- Unless otherwise directed by local health departments or local educational agencies, students and staff should follow CDPH masking guidance for the general public, as well was masking guidance for specific situations referenced below (e.g., when having symptoms, being infected, or exposed).
The definition of Fully Vaccinated has changed:
Fully vaccinated means a person has received all recommended doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine.
Up to date means a person has received all recommended doses in their primary series COVID-19 vaccine, and a booster dose when eligible.
Vaccinations are recommended, including booster shots for those already vaccinated, to stop the spread of COVID-19.
There are no vaccine or COVID test mandates for students in Oxnard Union to attend school at this time.
HOME TESTING KITS
Covid home testing kits are available in the main office.
Quarantine & Isolation Guidance
When reporting your student is Covid-19 positive, please provide the following information. By doing so, we will be able to update your students' attendance and you will also receive a return email with isolation dates and guidelines from the School Nurse.
Things to include if COVID POSITIVE:
- Date of Symptom onset
- Date of test with or without symptoms
The quarantine Period is determined by:
Start of Symptoms +1 day. For example, symptom onset on 9/1/22, the count starts on 9/2/22 for a total of 10 FULL days. Making 9/11/22 day 10 and return to school on 9/12/22.
If no symptoms, the count starts on the day the test was taken which resulted in a positive outcome. For example, a test is taken on 9/1/22, the count starts on 9/1/22 for a total of 10 FULL days. Making 9/12/22 day 10 and returning to school on 9/13/22.
***A NEGATIVE TEST is NOT required to return to school AFTER completing the quarantine period.***
