The Los Angeles County Department 
of Public Health (LAC DPH) 
has reported a gradual and consistent 
rise in COVID-19 transmission 
in our area over the past 
few weeks. To reduce the spread 
of infection, PUSD is offering 
some simple reminders and precautions. 
These are im-portant 
for everyone but especially for 
those who are more vulnerable to 
severe illness and death from COVID-19.



Masks are recommended but not required for students, teachers, staff, visitors, and volunteers 
regardless of vaccination status. PUSD continues to require masking at testing and vaccination 
clinics, and in school health offices for students, staff, and visitors exhibiting COVID-19 
symp-toms. If a PUSD employee tests positive, masks are required when returning to work 
after five days of isolation through Day 10.


The LAC DPH recommends that everyone mask around others for:

• 10 days if you are exposed to COVID-19

• Days 6-10 after a COVID-19 infection, if leaving isolation




COVID-19 testing remains a valuable tool. According to the LAC DPH, you should test:

• After you have been exposed to COVID-19

• If you have symptoms, such as a fever, cough, sore throat or fatigue

• Before visiting someone at high risk for severe illness


Families and staff may pick up free at-home test kits at all PUSD schools and at:

PUSD Education Center

351 S. Hudson Ave.

Health Programs Room 126

Pasadena, CA 91109

8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Free at-home tests are also widely available through community partners and at libraries and 
public health clinics throughout Los Angeles County. For more information, vis-it http://


The California Department of Public Health has issued a blanket extension indicating that 
rapid antigen tests (at-home and professional use) are not bound by their expiration date, 
and rather, they are deemed valid tests as long as the control line of the test shows up when 
reading the re-sult. For more information please visit


If you test positive:

• Stay home and away from other people for at least 5 full days. It is recommended that 
students wear a mask when returning to school through day 10. PUSD employees must wear 
a mask when returning to work through day 10.

• Consult a health care provider to access treatment. If you don’t have a provider, call 
the Public Health Call Center at 1-833-540-0473, seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.



Later this month, a new COVID-19 vaccine will be available for increased protection against 
newer COVID strains. Staying up to date on recommended vaccines protects us from getting 
serious illnesses. By getting vaccinated, we also protect those who can’t get vaccinated, like 
in-fants and people with weakened immune systems. Vaccinations help keep schools safe and 
help avoid disruptions to important (and fun) activities.


If you have questions or concerns about getting the latest COVID vaccine, please talk with 
your health care provider, school site nurse, visit or email healthprograms@
