Blueprint for a Safer Economy

The State of California has a blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities.

Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate for tier assignment including metrics from the last 3 weeks. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward. Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated on Tuesdays. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier. Public health officials are constantly monitoring data and can step in if necessary.

Washing and Sanitizing Hands

Students will be asked to wash and/or sanitize their hands multiple times each day. Portable hand washing stations have been added to make it more convenient for students to find a sink and hand sanitizer dispensers have been added to every room on campus. Students should practice washing hands thoroughly at home to prepare for school. A thorough hand washing includes at least 20 seconds of scrubbing with soap before rinsing.
