COVID-19 Information

MUSD COVID Dashboard

To ensure transparent and accurate information regarding COVID-19 cases within our school district, we are providing a dashboard as of the start of the 21-22 school year (Wednesday, August 18). All data in the dashboard indicate confirmed active cases among our students and staff. The dashboard data is updated within 24 hours of learning of any confirmed active cases and after any close contacts have been notified.  The dashboard may not be updated on weekends or other non-school days. Cases are removed from the dashboard once the student or staff member is cleared to return to school.
 

Isolation and Quarantine Protocols

Modified Quarantine Option for Students Exposed to COVID-19

Per the COVID-19 Exposure Management Plan Guidance in TK-12 Schools, Modified Quarantine is an option available to unvaccinated students who have had school-based exposures to a case of COVID-19. The decision to authorize this option is based on the relatively low rates of transmission on school campuses. Students under modified quarantine are strongly recommended to:

 

  • Wear a mask indoors and outdoors and on school buses, while at school.   
  • Be tested at least once weekly, preferably on or around Day 5.
  • Test once in the 10 days after the last exposure date, preferably between days 3 and 5 where possible. (The exception is students who had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 90 days; these students are exempt from testing.)
  • Remain fully masked indoors and outdoors, unless actively eating or drinking, when around others through day 10 after their last exposure date.

Information About Masks

As of March 12, the universal masking requirement of K-12 Schools and Childcare has been lifted. Both CDPH and County Public Health continue to strongly recommend that individuals in these settings continue to mask while indoors until transmission rates are much lower. 
 
Students under modified quarantine are strongly recommended to wear a mask indoors and outdoors and on school buses, while at school. The exception is for eating and drinking, where they must be at least 6 feet away from other students and preferably outdoors.
