Reducing transmission of COVID-19 remains an essential strategy to help protect those most vulnerable to severe illness, minimize disruption at schools, and reduce the chances of experiencing Long COVID.
Routine testing of asymptomatic students and staff is no longer recommended. We encourage staff and students to test themselves for COVID-19 if they have symptoms, have been exposed, or have recently been in crowded, poorly ventilated spaces without a mask (such as during travel). Additional testing recommendations may be recomended based on outbreaks and LA County COVID-19 hospital admission levels.
IUSD will continue to provide over-the-counter take-home COVID-19 antigen tests to all staff and students to further slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please contact your employment or school site to receive your free over the counter test kits.
Vaccination and testing remain key measures that help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
