COVID Protocols/Testing- *Updated Guidance*

RUSD will advise staff and students with symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home regardless of vaccination status. You must have a negative test result in order to return to school. Symptoms include:



-Nausea or Vomiting


-Muscle or Body Aches


-New Loss of Taste of Smell

-Sore Throat

-Congestion or Runny Nose



On December 30, 2021, CDPH updated its guidance and reduced the isolation requirement for individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 to five days if symptoms have resolved and they test negative on day five. Similarly, quarantine due to exposure to a positive case has been reduced to five days with a negative test. Additionally, all adults and students will continue to wear face coverings when indoors on all school campuses, regardless of their vaccination status.

Also, the results of At-Home Tests (Rapid Antigen tests recommended) may be utilized to clear persons to return to school in the updated scenarios above. RUSD required the submittance of an At-Home Test Validation Form and along with a photo of the result.
