Readiness to Return Dashboard

  • This OUSD Readiness to Return Dashboard will be updated regularly to reflect our most up-to-date COVID-19 preparedness efforts, and the steps we have completed to meet the standards set forth by the Alameda County Department of Public Health (ACPHD) to ensure safety for our students and staff. (Click here for a summary of those standards) Below there is also information about key health indicators from Alameda County Public Health Department. 


    In addition to completing the steps in the dashboard, our ability to return to in-person instruction is also dependent on Alameda County remaining in the orange or yellow tier (moderate or minimal risk, respectively) and reaching an agreement with our labor partners.


    Updated Jan. 6, 2021
    Percentages indicate the progress made toward completion of these tasks at and for
    Early Childhood sites, TK-12 sites, and Young Adult Program sites.

Alameda County Health Indicators

  • California's blueprint for reducing COVID-19 has criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities. Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its (1) adjusted case rate, (2) overall test positivity rate, and (3) Test positivity in the least advantaged census tracts (a health equity metric).

    As of Nov. 17, 2020, Alameda County is in tier 1. In order to advance to the next less restrictive tier, each county needs to meet the required thresholds for all three indicators. (see California Department of Public Health and Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD)). See below for information on these three indicators from ACPHD. For more detail please see, ACPHD COVID-19 data (including rates by zip code).
