LAUSD Covid 19 Information
NEW RESPONSE TESTING PROTOCOL (2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR)
Please note Los Angeles Unified updated these guidelines on August 2, 2022. Los Angeles Unified will continue to collaborate with our health partners at the county and state levels, as well as our panel of medical experts and university partners. We also continue to review updates to county, state, and federal guidance on a daily basis, and we may adjust policies accordingly.
Will COVID testing be required during the 2022-23 school year?
Following the guidance of our medical advisors and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health – and subject to changes to County Health Officer Orders – Los Angeles Unified will implement a new “response testing” protocol for summer school programs and the 2022-23 school year. Instead of requiring every student and employee to test weekly with a PCR test, only those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or who have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive, will be required to test. All testing will be conducted with take-home rapid antigen tests, which are available to students and employees at their school or worksite.
If a student or employee is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or is in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, how can they access testing?
Will the District continue its use of the Daily Pass for health screening and entry into a District site?
Can an employee or student be tested by their own healthcare provider?
Is masking required during the 2022-23 school year?
