Beginning Monday, March 14, 2022, masking in school will no longer be required, but remain strongly recommended by Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The mask update applies to all staff, students and visitors in all SRVUSD school environments, including preschool, TK, K-12, and our programs that serve adults.
 
 
Masking
  • For individuals exposed to Covid-19, it is strongly recommended, but not required, that a well-fitting mask is worn for up to 10 days after exposure. Please refer to these CCHS guidelines and these CDPH guidelines for a reminder on recommendations after exposure.
  • For individuals returning to school after a positive Covid infection, it is strongly recommended, but not required, that a well-fitting mask is worn for up to 10 days. Isolation rules for positive Covid cases are unchanged. Please refer to these CCHS guidelines and these CDPH guidelines for a reminder regarding isolation rules after testing positive.

Notification 
  • Exposure notifications will continue to be sent out and include the number of daily cases recorded at your school site.
  • The dashboard will be updated to reflect the positive Covid cases throughout the district. 
  • Group tracing allows all students to remain in school and participate in extracurricular activities following an exposure, regardless of masking choice and vaccination status.
 
Symptoms and Testing
  • Do not come to school if you are sick.
  • It is highly recommended that you test if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 or have had a known exposure.
  • If you have had Covid-19 in the past 90 days, regardless of vaccination status, and are experiencing symptoms of illness, it is highly recommended that you test with an antigen test only (do not test with a PCR test).
  • Testing will continue to be available at the Education Center, at 699 Old Orchard Drive, Danville. 
 
Volunteers
  • Current volunteer processes and requirements through Be A Mentor will remain unchanged: you are required to either provide proof of vaccination or submit proof of a negative Covid-19 test to volunteer in schools.

ILLNESS & QUARANTINE

COVID Signs & Symptoms:

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19,  stay home from school and follow the reporting, testing and quarantine guidance below.
  • Students who are ill at school with symptoms of COVID-19 will be sent home. 
  • Reporting Illness to schools
    • If your student is home ill with symptoms of COVID-19, report the absence to your school's attendance office

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. An over-the-counter home antigen test can be used to end isolation. For more information, visit the COVID-19 Patients and Contacts page.
The State recently updated its guidance for students exposed to COVID-19 in a K-12 setting, with updates to individual-level quarantine recommendations and an additional group-tracing approach strategy. All updates can be found on the CA Safe Schools Hub and in the CDPH K-12 School Guidance.

For Teachers and Staff

VACCINATIONS

Per County guidance, vaccinations are not required. However, SRVUSD strongly recommends and encourages all of our employees and eligible students to be vaccinated. Vaccines are available for people ages 5 and up.  Please see CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Page 
 
We also encourage you to share your vaccination status, as this will help with contact tracing and quarantine protocols, should there be a positive test. To confidentially record your student's vaccination status with the District, please provide proof of vaccination with the link below.

REPORTING

All positive cases will be reported per County Guidelines.
 
The District Dashboard will be maintained to reflect positive cases.

School sites will follow up with affected families to ensure continuity of education.
