The 4 Pillars - Safety Protocols
Masks in Schools
Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer, reviews some of the COVID-19 prevention and response protocols in place for schools this year and provides a real world scenario of how mask-on-mask exposures and modified quarantine work for students and their families.
COVID-19 Vaccines in San Mateo County
COVID-19 vaccination is one of the most important tools we have to end the COVID-19 pandemic and safely return all students to in-person learning. Not only that, it will help keep you, your family, your community, and your country healthy and safe. They have been shown to be safe and effective in reducing the likelihood of experiencing life-threatening side effects from COVID-19.
On August 11, 2021, California released a public health order requiring all school workers, including paid and unpaid adults serving in a school setting, to provide verification of their vaccination status, and if unvaccinated, to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing. The order applies to public and private schools and covers all staff and volunteers who are on-site at a school campus. The new policy for school staff will take effect on August 12, 2021, and schools must be in full compliance by October 15, 2021. Read a summary of the order.
Vaccines are now available for everyone aged 12 and older. The San Mateo County Office of Education is working with its health partners and school districts to arrange vaccination events on campuses throughout the county.
