Testing is available to our school communities at no cost at 30 locations in Alameda County. OUSD is working with the Alameda County Department of Public Health to ensure that our staff, students, and families are aware of all free testing sites that are accessible in and around Oakland.
While we acknowledge that testing and contact tracing are essential tools in the epidemiological response to the pandemic, testing and contact tracing are solidly in the domain of health professionals, not the District.
We will check symptoms and ensure that people inside our schools and office buildings are symptom-free.
We will ask all students and staff who are not feeling well to stay at home.
