Visit the SDCOE website for the guidelines we are following regarding quarantine and isolation.
We are using the Group Tracing Approach for students potentially exposed to COVID-19 at school, as announced by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on January 12, 2022. Potentially exposed students, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status or prior infection, should get tested for COVID-19 with at least one diagnostic test obtained within 3-5 days after last exposure.
Parents/Guardians must notify the school of a positive COVID-19 result. Potentially exposed students who participate in testing may continue to take part in all aspects of K-12 schooling, including sports and extracurricular activities, unless they develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.
To make a decision in accordance with these guidelines, you can answer the questions on this digital decision tree to get a direct answer on reccomended next steps. This one pager on group tracing protocols is also available in English and Spanish.
Remember to keep students who are experiencing symptoms or who test positive at home. If your student tested positive for COVID-19, the recommendation is to test on day 5 before returning to campus. Rapid/antigen tests can be requested at OUSD testing sites only for those students who are returning to school from isolation if they previously tested positive. At-home tests (rapid/antigen tests) may be used as well to return to school from isolation.
Where Can I Get Tested?
OUSD partners with two companies to provide free & voluntary COVID-19 testing to students and staff:
Please arrive before the conclusion of testing time to be tested. All sites require proof of insurance to receive a test at no cost to the individual. Students will continue to be tested upon request regardless of insurance.
Questions about testing? Please call either 760-966-4081 or 760-966-7882.
You can also get tested or vaccinated at the Vista Community Clinic.
Additionally, place your order for free at-home COVID-19 tests through the federal government here.
