We will be updating our written workplace safety/covid prevention plan and continue to follow the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health “K-12 Schools Reopening Protocols” (aka “Appendix T1”) which is anticipated around June 15th, along with the Final CalOSHA determination . . . which the News Outlets are now saying will align with the CA STATE Dept of Public Health’s upcoming June 15th guidelines.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health “Schools Exposure Management Plan” (aka “Appendix T2”) covers testing requirements surrounding OUTBREAKS specifically. Currently, Athletics ASIDE and outside of an outbreak, the CA state nor LA DPH does NOT presently Mandate SURVEILLANCE testing nor at any particular cadence. With conditions improving/protocols loosening, it’s hard to imagine they would ADD a SURVEILLANCE Testing Requirement.

What is determined for general industry workplaces could be different for what SCHOOLS, healthcare or congregate settings are required to do. And as Ms. Jammee said, a lot can change between now and 7/31…and even after that.
