If you need to receive a COVID-19 test because you have had an exposure to someone who tested positive with COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms related to the COVID-19 virus this document can be used as a resource in finding a testing facility.

There is currently high demand for testing and a limit to the number of tests each pharmacy can support so it is not uncommon for a facility to have a 2-3 day waiting period for an appointment or for there to be a shortage of available tests on hand at facilities and pharmacies in our community. Employees can self-administer an at-home COVID-19 test and report the results to a supervisor or the site medical/health designee. CUSD does not have the ability to make or change an appointment for you, nor does CUSD have the ability to change the policies, procedures or appointment schedules of any of these facilities.

CUSD Employee FAQs

Updated: January 3, 2022

If California’s requirements for K-12 Schools changes at any time, Clovis Unified will re-examine its processes/procedures as needed.

General

Q. How is Clovis Unified protecting our employees and students from the risk of COVID-19 infection?
A. Our comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan outlines the multi-layered approach we are using to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  It includes details about cleaning procedures, sanitization, hygiene, contact tracing and air quality measures in place and can be found online, along with many other details about Clovis Unified’s COVID-19 mitigation measures.  
See the COVID-19 Safety Plan here: https://www.cusd.com/covid-19safetyplan.aspx 
Check out summary information about the plan here: https://www.cusd.com/2021-22SchoolYear.aspx

Vaccination

Q. Given California’s new requirement that all school personnel show proof of vaccination and/or be required to test weekly, where should I submit my evidence of vaccination?
A. Please submit your proof of vaccination to Human Resources, who maintains our employee vaccination and testing database.

Q. I need to set up an appointment for vaccination or for a COVID-19 test. Where can I do that?
A. A list of testing locations and vaccination providers for your reference are on this page above.  This list is updated as new testing or vaccination locations become available.

Q. What is the district doing to promote vaccination for 12+ year old students and adults?
A. Clovis Unified has been an active partner with multiple local medical providers to make COVID vaccination accessible to anyone over 12 years of age. Community health partners will continue to offer occasional no-cost vaccination clinics, which will be promoted by the District to employees and parents.

Contact Tracing & Quarantine Guidelines

Q. I want to learn more about the different kinds of quarantine that may result from being identified as a close contact to a positive COVID case. Where can I go for this information?
A. We’ve created flowcharts and simple infographics to help explain California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) quarantine restrictions for employees and students.  You can see these at https://www.cusd.com/COVID-19Updates-CUSDEmployees.aspx.  

Q. If I’m vaccinated, do I have to quarantine after a close contact exposure?
A. For employees who are fully vaccinated and do not have symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test after a close contact exposure, you do not have to quarantine. If you become symptomatic, you will need to follow the appropriate isolation/quarantine guidance for symptomatic individuals.

Masks

Q. What is the current status of indoor mask requirements for staff and visitors as of January 2022?
A. Until at least January 15, 2022, California has an indoor face covering requirement that is in addition to the requirement that students and staff wear face coverings inside schools.  As a result, employees and visitors must wear face coverings inside CUSD buildings unless they are alone in an office or classroom, actively eating, or have an exemption on file with Human Resources in compliance with state regulations.

Q. How do I know and what do I do if a student or students in my class are exempted from wearing a mask?
A. Exempt student(s) will be noted in the confidential student information system accessible by teachers. Because they are exempt from wearing a mask based on California’s Public Health Guidance, any students so designated will not be expected to wear a mask indoors. If they can wear a face shield instead (as indicated on their exemption form), a notation would also be on the roster. This information will then be part of a student’s confidential record.

Q. What do I do if a student is unmasked in my class, but isn’t exempt?
A. If a non-exempt student refuses to wear a mask while in class, report the student to your site administration/Student Resource Center.  One of your site’s designated staff members will contact the student’s parent/guardian to discuss options to meet the District’s requirements. Options that will be discussed will be following our requirement that masks be worn indoors, short-term independent study (3-15 cumulative school days during a school year), completion of the student mask exemption form, or enrollment in our Clovis Online School. A classroom teacher would then be updated as to the option settled on during the parent-school communication.

Q. If a parent asks for confidential information pertaining to mask exemptions in my class, what should I do?
A. A student’s medical condition, mental health condition, disability, or hearing impairment is confidential information and should not be shared.

Q. If I am exempt from wearing a mask under California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirements what do I do?
A. CDPH requirements for masking includes conditions that exempt an individual from wearing a mask.  If you (1) have a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing mask, and/or (2) are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication, you can submit an exemption declaration to the Human Resources Department. Information and the exemption form can be found at https://www.cusd.com/MaskExemptions.aspx.  It’s important to remember that anyone who is not wearing a mask and is unvaccinated is subject to normal quarantine requirements should they be identified as a close contact COVID exposure. Quarantine requirements may be found at https://www.cusd.com/StudentStaffHealth.aspx.  

Q. What if I want the District to provide me with an appropriately fitted N-95 mask?
A. The District has N-95 masks in stock for employees who would like to use them in the workplace. Contact your supervisor who will work with our trained team who can properly fit and provide you with N-95 masks.

Benefits

Q. I’m a benefitted CUSD employee. Will my benefits cover me if I get COVID?
A. Yes.

Q. How much leave/sick time do I get if I test positive for COVID-19?
A. Clovis Unified has chosen to extend state and federal COVID supplemental leave through June 30, 2022.  The state and federal allowance from 2020 provided 80 hours of COVID illness leave for employees who are full time. Employees less than full time received a prorated amount. Employees have until June 30, 2022, to use any of their remaining state/federal COVID supplemental leave.  Once this COVID SB95 leave is exhausted, an employee can use their own sick time.
