(Previous COVID UPDATES December 2021, January 2022 and March 2022)
CDC AND LAPHD have provided updates in the following areas (see updated documents below for more detail):
School Mask Update – for TEACHERS, rather than cloth masks, required to wear disposable medical grade masks, changed daily. May choose to double mask with medical grade one and cloth together.
School Mask Update – for STUDENTS, it is strongly recommended (but not required) that students wear upgraded masks. A well-fitting, non-cloth mask of multiple layers of non-woven material with a nose wire is recommended, (like a disposable medical mask), changed daily.

no symptoms, date of positive test)
