Bassett Unified School District COVID-19 Dashboard
Greetings Bassett Unified School District Community!
As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, the district would like to share some updates on COVID-19 before students return to school. Below you will find the most current information regarding COVID-19 as it relates to students returning to school on Monday, August 15, 2022. The district’s goal is to provide up-to-date information to keep your children safe throughout the school year. As guidelines and mandates continue to change, the district will send out new notices.
Currently there are no indoor mask mandates and students will not be required to wear masks indoors. However, the Los Angeles County Public Health strongly recommends masks be worn while indoors and at crowded outdoor events, regardless of vaccination status. In line with the Los Angeles County Public Health Office, the district strongly recommends students wear masks while indoors at school.
Please note there are times when masks must be worn. For example:
- When a student tests positive for COVID-19. Isolation may end after day 5 if a negative COVID-19 test is received. Mask must be worn until day 10.
- When student has been exposed to COVID-19. If they have no symptoms and have a negative COVID-19 test, mask must be work until day 10.
- The district will be moving to Heluna Health/Primary.Health (no cost program)
- At-home test kits will be available for students
- Testing is required for exposure to COVID-19
- Testing is required to test shorten isolation time
- Testing is needed if student has COVID-19 symptoms
- Parent information on registration will be coming soon
- At this time COVID-19 vaccines are strongly encouraged although, not required
- If your child has received the COVID-19 vaccine, please bring in their vaccination record to their school. School vaccine records will be updated.
Thank you for helping keep our families, friends, and school community safe. The district looks forward in seeing everyone return to school on Monday, August 15, 2022.
