COVID-19 Resources

Face masks are now optional for all students and staff

For Students

  • The State recently adopted guidelines reducing the amount of time a student must stay home ("isolate") after they first test positive for COVID-19. If the child doesn't have symptoms or symptoms are improving, they can return to school if a test taken on or after Day 5 of isolation is negative (Day 1 is the day after the positive test). An over-the-counter home antigen test can be used to end isolation. For more information, visit the CCHS COVID-19 Patients and Contacts page.

  • The State recently updated its guidance for students exposed to COVID-19 in a K-12 setting. Our District is employing the group-tracing approach for contact tracing in schools, which can be found in the CDPH K-12 School Guidance.

For Teachers and Staff

Follow California's Guidance on Isolation and Quarantine of the General Public.
