Our Covid-19 Safety Plan
Mask Update (3/11/22):
YCSC will continue to supply N95 and KN95 masks to all sites for any students and staff members who want one.
YCSC is dedicated to upholding the standards of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) in encouraging staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. In response to Governor Newsom’s public health order, YCSC requires staff to either be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or, for staff who opt out of taking the Covid-19 vaccine, undergo weekly PCR or antigen testing. Vaccination records and weekly Covid-19 test results for unvaccinated staff must be uploaded to Preworkscreen, the daily self screening application that YCSC uses for monitoring symptoms and logging staff vaccination information.
YCSC students are strongly recommended, but not required, to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
Rapid Antigen Testing Updates:
The Los Angeles County Office of Education and the CDPH have partnered with Primary Health to provide YCSC sites with Abbott’s BinaxNOW rapid antigen kits. Students who were a close contact of someone who recently tested positive for Covid and/or who are showing symptoms, should tell a staff member and take a rapid antigen test ASAP. Please refer to the Appendix of our Safety Plan for additional instructions for rapid testing.
YCSC does not currently have a school-wide testing requirement for students and staff. It is left up to each site how they choose to use the testing options available. Any questions regarding PCR or rapid antigen tests should be directed to Tyler Hamilton at [email protected]
All staff and students will be notified of any additional updates to the safety plan and those updates will also be posted on the website.
