CA Safe Reopening

COVID-19 Resources For School Administration

Schools that have already reopened (including schools with waivers) are permitted to switch on and off in-person instruction as necessary for reasons such as extended vacation recess, temporary transition to distance learning, etc.), regardless of current Tier 1 status.

Together with public and private schools, Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) and healthcare providers, the OC Health Care Agency (HCA) COVID-19 School Response Team works collaboratively to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Orange County schools.
