Orange County COVID-19 Monitoring List Update

With the number of new COVID-19 cases declining, and a relatively low testing positivity rate, Orange County has made its way off the State’s Monitoring List as of August 22. This is a positive development and a testament to the communities in our county that have pulled together to reinforce the effectiveness of face coverings and physical distancing. It also brings schools within our county a step closer to resuming in-person instruction, but we’re not there just yet. AT THIS TIME NO DATE HAS BEEN SET FOR OUR DISTRICT TO REOPEN IN-PERSON. The county must now remain off the State’s COVID-19 Monitoring List for at least 14 consecutive days in order for schools to be eligible to reopen for in-person instruction with adherence to the state safety guidelines. However, county health officials are cautioning that transmission rates continue to exceed state thresholds in some areas of the county. Therefore we will work closely with the OC Health Care Agency to monitor the county and community data as we continue to plan and prepare to safely resume modified in-person instruction (Level 2). Once the 14-day period is complete and the county positivity rate and number of cases do not elevate above the standards set by the state, a start date will be set and details of the modified in-person instruction will be announced. Providing advance notice of a start date is essential to allow time to fully prepare for the transition from distance learning to reopening our campuses. This transition includes working with our employee associations, providing services to our students such as transportation and food services and implementing health and safety protocols. In addition, we will continue to closely follow the guidance of our public health partners, including the county Health Care Agency and the California Department of Public Health. Meanwhile, it is important for students to continue to fully participate and engage in distance learning every day. Additional updates and next steps will be provided as we continue through this 14-day period. Please view our for additional information. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we adjust to ever-changing conditions.
