Keeping our Schools Safe

Marin County Public Health continues to work in close partnership with Marin County Office of Education and leaders of our public, private, parochial and independent schools to facilitate fulltime site-based K-12 in-person instruction.

How to Keep Your School Safe from COVID-19

1. Stay home when sick

Symptoms of COVID-19 may be mild and the best way to know if you or your child has COVID-19 is to get tested or stay home until symptoms have resolved if unable to test.

2. Test

Home tests provide accurate and timely results. Students and staff can use a home test provided by their school or purchase tests in a local pharmacy. Visit our testing webpage for a list of testing sites. 

3. If positive, isolate at home

People who test positive should stay home and isolate following CDPH guidance. If unable to test, stay isolated for 10 days. Contact your school or visit MCOE's Rethinking Schools webpage for more information about when your child may return to school after testing positive.

4. Notify close contacts

If you or your child tests positive, notify anyone outside of the school setting with whom you or child shared indoor space for 15 minutes or more in the two days before symptoms started or two days before the test if there were no symptoms.

5. Notify your school

Contact your school to let them know that your child tested positive, and they will be absent due to COVID-19.

School Status 

Local COVID-19 Surveillance Resources: With the shift from pandemic to endemic status, individual case reporting of COVID 19 cases has decreased significantly. The schools dashboard, which had relied on individual case reports, has been retired. Surveillance efforts now focus on community virus levels in wastewater, hospitalization rates, and outbreaks. The surveillance webpage is updated weekly with local data.
