COVID-19 Information

Dear CJUHSD Community: 

COVID-19 has been challenging for our community through the years and guidance is periodically updated. The District is committed to providing a safe experience for students and staff while adhering to local, state, and federal guidelines. Guidance information is readily available at the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention websites.

The following is intended to assist the community with information regarding COVID-19 prevention and protocols:  

In accordance with the requirements of California Senate Bill 1479, the Chaffey Joint Union High School District has adopted the California State Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 testing framework. The most recent copy of the framework may be viewed on the California Department Public Health website. The District provides free at-home tests to staff and students upon request or as per Cal/OSHA regulations as applicable. In addition, the United States Department of Health and Human Services will mail free at-home COVID-19 test kits to your home upon request by clicking the following link: . 

Students: Report confirmed COVID-19 to your school. The CJUHSD schools and staff will maintain confidentiality and protect student privacy, following all FERPA Protocols. For additional information, please visit the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health. 

Staff: Report confirmed COVID-19 to your immediate supervisor. The District adheres to Cal/OSHA COVID-19 regulations pertaining to employees. 

The District will notify employees and independent contractors who had a close contact as required by Cal/OSHA. The District will no longer notify students of potential exposure.   

Isolation is separating those infected with a contagious disease from people who are not infected.  

Quarantine restricts the movement of susceptible persons who were exposed to a contagious disease in case they become infected. 

Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are symptomatic must isolate from others. The isolation period is from the day of symptom onset until 24 hours have passed with no fever, without the use of fever-reducing medications, AND symptoms are mild and improving. No isolation is required for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are asymptomatic. Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 should mask while around other people indoors for 10 days after symptoms begin or test positive (if no symptoms) but may remove the mask sooner than 10 days if there are two subsequent negative tests at least one day apart. Day 0 is symptom onset date or positive test date.

The District continues to implement health and safety guidelines to help prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses and workplaces.  Mitigation strategies include: 

Contact Tracing: Individuals can quickly respond to potential exposure due to group tracing methods. 

Cleaning and Disinfecting: Custodial staff continue to implement cleaning and disinfecting procedures and are following related protocols to deep clean, sanitize and disinfect sites as needed. 

Face Mask: Face masks can be an effective way to protect oneself and others. No person is prevented from wearing a mask unless wearing a mask would pose a safety hazard. The District continues to provide free access to masks. 

Good Hygiene: Adequate supplies such as soap and water, tissues, and hand sanitizer are available to support frequent hand washing and other good hygiene practices. 

Symptom Monitoring: Individuals are encouraged to self-monitor for COVID symptoms. 

Testing:Free COVID-19 testing is available for students and staff on campus. 

Vaccination: Vaccinations can help protect against certain diseases by working with the body’s natural defenses to build immunity to disease. The District has provided vaccination opportunities to students and staff 

Ventilation: School HVAC systems have been recalibrated to pull in more fresh air and equipped with bipolar ionization generators to purify the air.
