This fact sheet provides employers and workers not covered by the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases standard with information on when and for how long workers must be excluded from the workplace if they test positive or are exposed to someone who has COVID-19. The chart below reflects the new California Department of Public Health (CDPH) isolation and quarantine periods guidance from January 6, 2022, which overrides the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards in certain circumstances.

Updated COVID-19 Guidance
 
Dear MJUSD Community,

As you all may know, the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is widely circulating in our community and throughout the state of California. Recent data shows that more than 1 in 5 covid tests in California are coming back positive, and we have noticed an increase in positive cases among students and staff since we returned from winter break. Please refer to the MJUSD COVID-19 dashboard for current and cumulative case counts within the district and the Yuba County COVID-19 dashboard for county case counts.  
 
The health and safety of our staff and students are our top priority. MJUSD staff will continue to promote healthy habits, including hand washing throughout the day.  Hand sanitizer will continue to be available throughout the school, and continued use of masks will help curb the spread of all illnesses at school sites. Parents, please do not send your students to school if they are experiencing symptoms. Instead, please notify your school site and a health aide will reach out to you to discuss next steps.

All Marysville Joint Unified School District schools should be following and adhering to the latest CDPH guidance and requirements for students. Staff should follow the CDPH guidelines, which align with CalOSHA. As information changes or is updated, MJUSD will work to provide updated guidance to all. A PDF is attached and linked here with information on current health guidance, close contacts, and testing

To help slow the spread and protect yourself and others, upgrade your mask. Wear an N95, KF94, or KN95 if you can, especially in crowded public settings.

Dashboard

Email and text messages will still be sent from the Principals at impacted sites to students and families directly impacted, and school personnel, directly impacted by the positive case at a site, will receive a Catapult message. Districtwide, every one of us will now have access to the MJUSD COVID-19 Dashboard so any one of us can determine how many positive cases occurred each day.
 
 
Questions can be sent to Supervisor of Health and Wellness, Jordan Wells, at jwells@mjusd.com or at 740-6487.

New CDPH Information:
What to Consider When Choosing a Mask for Kids
 
Masks are a great way to reduce COVID-19 in schools. Masks help stop the virus from getting into the air if the person wearing it is infected. Masks also help protect people from breathing in the virus from the air.

CDPH has released tips and resources for choosing the best mask for children. KF94s and KN95s are both available in kid's sizes with good fit and good filtration. N95s also provide excellent fit and filtration but will not fit smaller faces. Kid-sized medical masks provide good filtration, but do not provide a tight fit. Fabric masks can help reduce the spread of COVID-19, but many have both poor fit and filtration.
