Good afternoon, everyone. There will not be a Friday Update this week, but I did want to share COVID testing and vaccination information. Information is below and attached.
Also, the Healthy Yolo testing facility in front of the library is available Tuesdays and Thursdays. More information is linked here<https://healthydavistogether.org/schooltesting/winters/>. No appointment necessary; however, if you register in advance you’ll move through the process more quickly. This is a saliva based test so no drinking or eating within 30 minutes of spitting into the test kit!
Feel free to distribute the attached flyers in your social media or post in your store windows. The Call to Order Vaccine Service has been extended through September. It doesn’t get any easier than having someone come to your home or workplace to get vaccinated.
Have a good week,
On September 13, Yolo County and the Yolo County Office of Education will be hosting a Yolo County School Safety Webinar! Join us for a virtual school safety webinar with Yolo County Public Health Officer Dr. Aimee Sisson and County Superintendent Garth Lewis. Experts from the fields of public health and education join together to share best practices to keep children safe and schools open. Please invite everyone who may be interested in joining (flyer is attached). Watch on Facebook live at https://fb.me/e/2BYTUf2HX.
Last week on Sept. 1 CDPH published updated guidance for K-12 schools. Notably, the new guidance provides recommendations and requirements for school-based extracurricular activities. The new section extends the requirements and recommendations in the Guidance for K-12 Schools to all extracurricular activities that are operated or supervised by schools, and all activities that occur on a school site, whether or not they occur during school hours, including, but not limited to, sports, band, chirus, and clubs. I recommend reading the full guidance for K-12 schools at: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/K-12-Guidance-2021-22-School-Year.aspx.
Additionally, FAQ sections have been added to accompany the decision trees that have been developed for exposures in K-12 settings and exposures in non-k-12/non-medical settings. The FAQs cover how to count the days since exposure to calculate when quarantine can end, the difference between isolation and quarantine, what a modified quarantine is, and more. The two decision trees and the new FAQs are available on our Roadmap to Recovery page: www.yolocounty.org/coronavirus-roadmap
