June 15, 2021
We recognize that the big question of the day is how Governor Newsom’s June 15 “Reopening of California” impacts the day-to-day operations of Clovis Unified, and wanted to provide an update on what is changing (and what cannot yet change) about our COVID-19 mitigation requirements. The changes are expected to align California guidance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations.
- Indoors: Students, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings while indoors on school campuses regardless of vaccination status. (Note: Pending updates from the Center for Disease Control and CalOSHA coming later this month may change this regulation and we’ll keep our community updated as we monitor the topic.)
- Outdoors: Students, staff and visitors are not required to wear face coverings outdoors regardless of vaccination status, but are encouraged to do so in crowded outdoor settings or during activities that involve sustained close contact with other people who are not fully vaccinated.
- COVID testing is no longer required for students participating in athletic competitions.
- Clovis Unified is seeking clarification on the new June 15 regulations related to face coverings for indoor and outdoor sports as currently defined in the California Department of Public Health’s “Outdoor and Indoor Youth and Recreational Adult Sports” guidance.
Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA):
- Updates to current guidance for K-12 performing arts are still pending.
- As of the start of summer school, Clovis Unified no longer conducts daily temperature checks.
As COVID-19 conditions and vaccination rates continue to improve, and regulations and requirements continue to be updated at the national, state and local level, we will keep our community informed as future modifications impact Clovis Unified’s COVID-19 mitigation requirements.
