Not feeling well?
If you have any symptoms, test immediately, even if you are vaccinated. If your test is negative but you continue to have symptoms, test again 24-48 hours later. Low amounts of virus early in infection can sometimes be missed by a test, and the test can be positive a few days later.

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, and you don’t want to spread them, even if they are not Covid-related.
  • Monitor for symptoms of Covid: sore or scratchy throat, fever, runny nose, congestion, cough, difficulty breathing, severe headache, loss of taste or smell, nausea, 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.
  • Get Vaccinated: All Covid vaccines currently available in California are safe and effective at preventing serious illness from Covid. Vaccination will protect you and those you love. Californians ages 6 months 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.
  • Upgrade Your Mask: Masks help protect you and others. Good fit and filtration continue to be the best way to get the most out of your mask. The best masks for preventing Covid include the N95, KN95 and KF94. If you don’t have access to one of these masks, wear a surgical mask or a surgical mask with a cloth mask on top. If you choose a fabric mask, opt for one with three of more cloth layers. No matter what kind of mask you wear, check the fit by avoiding gaps above the nose or on the sides.
