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

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 due to successful mitigation strategies such as the use of face coverings, assigned seating, improved ventilation and sanitation efforts, and robust symptom screening and contact tracing programs.

An unvaccinated close contact may remain in school under a modified quarantine if:

  • The exposure was in a school setting
  • The student is asymptomatic (i.e., showing no symptoms related to COVID-19)
  • The student and the infected person wore masks throughout the exposure

During the modified quarantine, the student must:

  • Wear a mask indoors and outdoors while at school
  • Stay at home except for in-person instruction
  • Be tested twice weekly for COVID-19
 

Información sobre la cuarentena modificada

De acuerdo al plan de orientación del manejo de la exposición de COVID-19  en las escuelas KT-12 , la cuarentena modificada es una opción que está disponible para los estudiantes que no están vacunados quienes han tenido exposiciones escolares a un caso de COVID-19. La decisión de autorizar esta opción  está basada sobre los índices de transmisión relativamente bajos en los campus escolares debido a las exitosas estrategias de mitigación tales como el uso de cubiertas para la cara, asientos asignados, mejoría de la ventilación, esfuerzos de saneamiento, programas sólidos  de detección de síntomas y rastreo de contactos.

Un contacto cercano no vacunado puede permanecer en la escuela bajo una cuarentena modificada si:

  • La exposición fue en el entorno escolar
  • El estudiante es asintomático (es decir, sin mostrar síntomas relacionados con COVID-19)
  • El estudiante y la persona infectada usaron máscaras durante toda la exposición

Durante la cuarentena modificada, el estudiante debe:

  • Usar una máscara en el interior y exterior mientras esté en la escuela
  • Quedarse en casa excepto para la instrucción en persona
  • Hacerse la prueba de detección de COVID-19 dos veces a la semana

Information About Masks

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) requires masks be worn while indoors at all times.  As of January 4, 2022, the LACDPH requires masks to also be worn outdoors.  Exceptions include when actively eating or drinking and in outdoor settings where physical distancing can be reliably maintained.
 
LACDPH recommends but does not require that students wear upgraded masks that at a minimum are well-fitting, non-cloth masks of multiple layers of non-woven material with a nose wire. Nothing in their protocols require that schools provide upgraded masks to its general student population and parental preference must be respected as to the level of PPE a student wears. However, universal masking with some appropriate type of face covering is still currently required for both indoor and outdoor settings on the school campus and on school buses.  To learn more, click here.
 
LACDPH now requires school employees to wear surgical or respirator masks (e.g. N95 of KN95).  To learn more, click here.
