In an effort to be more efficient, South Bay will follow the California Department of Public Health's guidance on employing group tracing in our efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Group tracing is notifying parents of students who have shared a common indoor airspace with a person who was contagious with COVID-19 for more than 15 minutes in a 24-hour period.
Students who have been identified by the school site should get tested for COVID-19 on the fifth day after their exposure, or sooner if the student starts to show symptoms. Testing site options include:
County of San Diego: Click here to find a testing site near you.
At this time, over-the-counter (at-home) tests may also be used.
Additionally, the South Bay Union School District Office COVID-19 testing is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19, please ensure they isolate at home immediately and notify your child’s school.
Students must continue to wear a mask indoors in the school and community per school, local, and state requirements. Follow school policies to protect against COVID-19. We will continue to provide you with regular updates as needed.
