Pivoting Between Hybrid Models
- The school will track epidemiological data and health care capacity (new case rate, percent positivity trends, hospital capacity, ICU bed capacity, and ventilator capacity) and follow directives and guidelines regarding opening from the CDPH.
- The school will follow directives and mandates from the governor’s office and mayor’s office.
- Based on the current best available scientific evidence, COVID-related risks in schools serving elementary-age students (grades K-6) are lower than and different from the risks to staff and to students in schools serving older students. In particular, there appears to be lower risk of child-to-child or child-to-adult transmission in children under age 12, and the risk of infection and serious illness in elementary school children is particularly low. (CDPH 8/3/20)
