Dear South Bay Community,
As you probably know, here in California Governor Gavin Newsom been sharing plans for our state’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This information includes details on when and how to modify his Stay-at-Home Executive Order, which will be done using a gradual, science-based and data-driven framework.
The Governor’s recovery plan details the four stages for reopening businesses and services. We are currently in stage 1, safety and preparedness. Stage 2, which includes public education, focuses on lower risk workplaces making modifications to support reopening. Stage 3 is the reopening of higher risk workplaces. Finally, Stage 4 is the end of the Stay-at-Home Executive Order and the expansion of the workforce in the highest risk workplaces.
The Governor has established six indicators in order to modify the Stay-at-Home Order:
- The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed;
- The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19;
- The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges;
- The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand
- The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing; and
- The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.
South Bay leaders continue to work with state and local public officials on planning and preparing for the reopening of schools even though we aren't certain we know when that will be. Be assured that we will provide you additional information as it becomes available. Please continue to visit the District website for updates, news, and community resources.
We understand that this is a difficult time for our students and families. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. Please continue to stay safe and healthy.
Dr. Katie McNamara, District Superintendent
