Return Health COVID-19 Response Teams

COVID-19 Response Teams

Overview

The district and school site COVID-19 response teams ensure implementation of public health measures. 

School Site Response Teams 

The school site safety plan will incorporate plans for ensuring all public health measures are implemented and for responding to COVID-19 concerns. School sites will designate staff to serve on the COVID-19 Response Team and these members will regularly communicate the importance of following these safety measures. 

In the event of a COVID-19 concern, staff should know who to contact. School staff will follow all the steps outlined in Procedures for Managing Illness and Preventing Spread of COVID-19 in the SCUSD Community. The assigned school nurse is trained to coordinate the documentation and tracking of possible exposure, in order to notify local health officials, staff and families in a prompt and responsible manner. Each incident of COVID-19 illness will be reviewed and procedures will be revised or updated as needed to prevent further cases. 

District Response Team 

The district shall routinely revise and update plans and procedures for ensuring all public health measures are implemented and for responding to COVID-19 concerns. Designated department leads are identified for ensuring public health mitigation measures are implemented and followed. Procedures are outlined for responding to any concerns about a COVID-19 concern – see Procedures for Managing Illness and Preventing Spread of COVID-19 in the SCUSD Community.
