Quick Tips and Reminders
  • Stay home if you’re not feeling well: Stay home if you are feeling sick! There are a lot of viruses going around this season, and you don’t want to spread them, even if they are not COVID-related.
  • Monitor for symptoms of COVID-19: sore or scratchy throat, fever, runny nose, congestion, cough, difficulty breathing, severe headache, loss of taste or smell, vomiting, diarrhea, unexplained muscle aches or body aches, and/or unexplained fatigue. Even though symptoms may be mild for many people, they can cause serious illness for some. 
    • Please be aware that symptoms are very subtle for many people. If your student develops any of these symptoms, keep them at home and notify your school’s attendance line. You will receive instructions for getting your student tested to rule out COVID-19.
  • Get Vaccinated: All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in California are safe and effective at preventing serious illness from COVID-19. Vaccination will protect you and those you love. Californians ages 5 and older are now eligible for vaccination. Additionally, those over the age of 12 who are at least five months after their last dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or at least two months after J&J, should get a booster. To find a vaccine or booster, visit the My Turn website.
  • Wear Masks: Masks are required in indoor public places in Alameda County. Additionally, everyone must wear a mask on public transit (airports, planes, trains, buses, stations) and in healthcare settings, K-12 schools, and childcare settings. Learn more about Alameda County's masking requirements.
