Alameda County Schools to reopen for in-person instruction in 2021-22
All K-12 Districts in Alameda County will reopen for in-person instruction in the 2021-22 school year. On July 30, the Bay Area County Superintendents issued a press release supporting the full opening of schools to in-person instructions and strongly advocated for vaccines for all students and families 12 years and older to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Please see your district website for information about your school's reopening plans.
The State of California has provided its guidance to schools for the 2021-22 school year.
Health Officer Order 21-01a aligns the County with the restrictions, terms, and conditions imposed on individuals, businesses, and activities by the State’s Public Health Officer Order issued on June 11, which means no more physical distancing, no more capacity limits on businesses, no more county tiers. Effective July 16, Alameda County has reinstituted a recommendation for masks in all indoor public settings.
The State’s new more limited Beyond-the-Blueprint restrictions are only applicable to masking and Mega Events, as well as settings serving children and youth pending an expected update to the K-12 schools guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Individuals and employers are directed to the State’s COVID-19 website to determine the permissions and restrictions applicable to specific activities and businesses.
