Wellness Screening

It is important for us all to monitor our health each day. If you don't feel well or have symptoms of respiratory illness, stay home, let the school know, and contact your healthcare provider for guidance. Do not enter the school.

Questions to ask each day

  1. Regardless of your vaccination status, have you experienced any of the symptoms in the list below in the past 48 hours?
  2. Are you isolating or quarantining because you or someone in your household tested positive for COVID-19 or are worried that you or they may be sick with COVID-19?
  3. Have you been in close physical contact (less than 6 feet for 15+ minutes over a 24 hour period) in the last 14 days with someone who is known or suspected to have COVID-19? 

If anyone answers 'yes' to any of the screening questions, you should not go to work/school and must follow LACDPH isolation and quarantine orders

If someone lives in the household and meets the previous criteria, they are considered close contacts. Anyone who has had close contact with someone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 must quarantine for 10 days from last contact with the infected individual unless fully vaccinated.
