COVID-19 Updates and Resources

Update (July 2021)

On July 12, 2021, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released its COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2021-22 School Year. The guidance aligns California school policy with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) updated recommendations for K-12 schools, which were released on July 9, 2021, and continue to be updated. The CDPH guidance also reflects recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics COVID-19 Guidance for Safe Schools. The foundational principle of the CDPH guidance is that all students must have access to safe and full in-person instruction and to as much instructional time as possible. The CDPH continues to update its guidance for schools.
