VMS aligns with the Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD).

For complete, up-to-date Covid-19 Guidance, see the Alameda County 2022-2023 School Guidance document.
Contact the VMS Covid Team at covidteam@vmschool.org with Covid-related questions or if your child has symptoms or tests positive for Covid.

Positive Case:  What should I do if my child tests positive for Covid?
• Stay home for at least 5 days.
• Isolation can end after Day 5 if:  Symptoms are not present, or are mild and improving; AND you are fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medication).
• If fever is present, continue isolation until fever has resolved for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications).
• If other symptoms are not resolving, continue to isolate until symptoms are resolving or until after Day 10.
• Wear a well-fitting mask indoors for a total of 10 days.*

Covid-19 Exposure Recommendations: What should I do if my child is exposed to someone with Covid?
Test immediately and then again between day 3 and 5.
• Wear a well-fitting mask indoors for 10 days from last exposure.

Mask Protocols:
To protect those in our community who are at high risk, the ACPHD recommends masks in public indoor spaces, including schools:
• when case counts are high, see ACPHD dashboard for current data.
• For 10 days following exposure to someone with Covid.
• For 10 days following positive test or onset of symptoms*

* Masks can be removed before 10 days with 2 consecutive negative tests 24 hours apart. (This does not apply to staff due to Cal/OSHA requirements.)

See Covid Isolation Tip Sheet for more information.

Note: Staff Guidance per CalOSHA can be found on the Staff Page.
