- Instructions for reporting your iHealth test results
- Get tested: if you are feeling any symptoms, you should stay home and get tested a day or two after symptoms begin – regardless of your vaccination status. COVID-19 symptoms can feel like a common cold (including just "the sniffles"), seasonal allergies, or flu. COVID-19 testing in California is free to anyone who needs it. The PUSD Testing Center behind Hart Middle School offers free drop-in testing for PUSD students and staff most days of the week (check the schedule before you go - hours change frequently). Note: PUSD requires two negative tests at least 48 hours apart to return after symptoms during the Omicron surge.
- 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.
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 18 who are at least six 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, call (833) 422-4255 or 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.
