Contact Tracing Protocols

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has updated and simplified its guidance on contact tracing due to the current surge in cases. Beginning Monday, Jan 24, 2022, the District will implement these new procedures which include a general notice of exposure and corresponding actions depending on vaccination status. This new, temporary protocol is intended to keep students attending classes and participating in extracurricular activities through alternatives to close contact quarantine requirements.
