COVID-19 Safety Plan
CVUSD will align with applicable Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) and California Division of
Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) employer-specific guidance on face coverings for students, staff and visitors to CVUSD facilities. Although not required, students and staff are strongly recommended to wear masks indoors at all times while at school.
The District will have masks available for any student or staff seeking one, at all CVUSD schools and facilities. CVUSD will follow any CDPH or ACPHD masking order.
It is strongly recommended that individuals mask indoors for ten days after testing positive for COVID-19 or after a close contact with a case.
COVID-19 Testing and Reporting
CVUSD will be transitioning to offer antigen testing every weekday afternoon at the CFA, from 1:30 - 4:30 pm. This testing will be open to CVUSD students and staff only, not household members. PCR testing at the CFA will end mid-August. The district will also continue to distribute antigen tests to schools as often as possible so that each campus has a stock to share with families and staff in need.

Visit https://covid-19.acgov.org/vaccines to find out where you can get vaccinated against COVID-19 in the community.
Students who have received the COVID-19 vaccine are not required to report their vaccination status. However, vaccination status can now affect an individual’s quarantine timeline should they be exposed to a positive COVID-19 individual. It is encouraged that you report your student’s status, if they have received the vaccine, please contact your school site secretary. Staff who have received the COVID-19 vaccination are encouraged to complete the employee COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Form in Frontline Central. Staff that does not submit a vaccination card, will be required to take a weekly COVID-19 test.
Student/Employee Exposed to COVID-19 on Campus
During times of elevated community transmission of COVID-19 we will be sending a general notification to the entire school community alerting all to the increased potential of being exposed to COVID-19 due to a rise in cases among school and community members, and reminding all to monitor for symptoms and get tested.
Every student who has shared indoor space with the subject student during the infectious period (mainly classes) will receive the Group Tracing Notice when we are NOT in times of elevated community transmission.
- WEAR A MASK INDOORS: Exposed people should wear a mask indoors for 10 days following an exposure.
- No need to stay home unless you develop symptoms or test positive: Students may attend school, sports, and childcare, regardless of vaccination status
- Test at home: Test 3-5 days after exposure, or sooner if symptoms develop.
