Safety Measures for K-12 Schools from CDPH (Updated 8/9/2022)

  • This year there has been quite a change in the requirements for the 2022-23 school year in regards to COVID.  The following is the list of required actions and recommended guidelines for Schools grades tk-12.  

    • 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., watersports).
    • 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.

    Managing Individuals with Symptoms
    • California requires employers to provide COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave for most workers through December 31, 2022. This includes circumstances in which workers are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and seeking a medical diagnosis, attending a vaccine appointment for themselves or for a family member, and/or if a worker's child is isolating due to COVID-19 infection.
