COVID-19 Information

To ensure a positive 2022 - 2023 in-school experience and in support of the health and safety of staff, students, and families, EGUSD is continuing to adhere to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH) guidance and protocols. Below you will find links to the respective COVID-19 Guidelines.

Facemasks: Strongly recommended for all students and staff, especially when indoors. Facemasks will be available for students and staff at all District sites. School sites can keep their inventory updated by ordering additional masks from the warehouse. 
Hand Hygiene: Encourage proper hand hygiene by handwashing with soap and water, especially before and after eating, and having hand sanitizer available to all students and staff. School sites can keep their inventory updated by ordering additional hand sanitizer from the warehouse. 
COVID-19 Symptom Isolation (COSI) rooms: COSI rooms will also remain open and be appropriately staffed at all school sites. 
Students and Staff with Symptoms, Test Positive, or Close Contact: Follow the SCPH Decision Tree.
COVID-19 Cleaning: When a positive case is identified, specialized teams continue cleaning practices at all district schools/sites through the summer, and these practices will remain in place for the start of the 2022-23 school year. Cleaning materials for staff will also continue to be provided following the same practices as last school year. Individual Tersano hand held units for teachers have been purchased and will be provided along with microfiber cloths. A training video is being developed, and these additional resources will be available for staff sometime in August.  
Contact Tracing: No changes from the end of the 2021-2022 school year and summer programs. Students and staff in a classroom are all considered exposed and families will receive the classroom exposure letter. All staff on campus or in an office will receive the all staff exposure letter when there is a positive case on campus or in the office. Staff who are identified as close contact to a positive case will receive an email or call from a staff member of the EGUSD contact tracing team. 
Weekly Mandated Testing of Unvaccinated Staff: The CDPH employee COVID-19 vaccine mandate is still in effect. Staff who are unvaccinated must continue to follow the same weekly testing procedures as required in the 2021-2022 school year and throughout the summer.
