2022 School and/or Classroom Closure Guidance & Considerations

2022 School and/or Classroom Closure Guidance & Considerations
title

Per the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) K-12 Schools Guidance 2021-22 Questions & Answers, "California is unequivocally committed to preserving the safety and success of in-person instruction at K-12 schools.  A temporary school closure due to COVID-19 should be a last resort and considered only after all available resources have been exhausted in an attempt to preserve in-person education.
 
Temporary school closures should be considered only after conferring with local health officials.  There is no specific case threshold at which the State recommends an immediate temporary closure of a classroom or school. Instead, the process should be guided by local epidemiology, with particular attention paid to concern for in-school transmission.  Operational factors may also be considered, including the ability to maintain sufficient teaching staff to provide in-person instruction.  
 
Note that infections diagnosed in students and school staff are not necessarily the result of exposure at school, and COVID-19 transmission remains much more likely to occur among people living in the same household or participating in other non-school activities."
