COVID-19 Dashboard (2022-2023)
Brea Olinda Unified School District is committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of our students and staff. For the 2022-23 school year, you will notice changes in the reporting requirements for schools. Student COVID-19 positive cases are only required to be reported in the event of an outbreak in a classroom or school. This is the Department of Public Health protocol districts must follow when there are high incidents of illnesses at a school or class.
Our COVID-19 Dashboard will reflect these changes and consists of medically confirmed COVID-19 cases of students (outbreaks only) and staff (in-person instruction only) on our campuses. This data will be updated as COVID-19 outbreaks are medically confirmed, and will be captured on the Dashboard on Tuesdays and Fridays only. Each confirmed outbreak will remain listed for 14 days. In the event of a confirmed outbreak, principals or school staff will communicate such information directly to their communities and affected classes. Employee notifications will continue to be addressed per current protocols when there is an exposure due to a positive case. Please note that our District will only communicate and provide data for confirmed COVID-19 outbreaks for the 2022-2023 school year.
The Dashboard also provides information about BOUSD’s communication process, parent reporting requirements, information about how families and students can limit the spread of COVID-19, and links to resources.
Please note: New state guidance set to reduce isolation time to five days
With an end declared to California's COVID-19 state of emergency, state health officials have announced updates to several pandemic-era public health orders related to vaccines, masking, isolation and quarantine. One big change that will impact schools is reduced isolation time for individuals recovering from COVID-19. Beginning May 13, 2022, a person who has tested positive needs to isolate at home for just five days, rather than 10, as along as they are feeling well, have improving symptoms and are fever-free for 24 hours.
- The Dashboard contains information on staff and students who are participating in in-person instruction for the 2022-2023 school year only.
- Updates will be provided by 3:00 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, with the exception of school closures.
- If your student(s) is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, it must be reported directly to your school during regular business hours. After hours, please leave a detailed message at the following number, 714-831-1040, or you can submit the COVID-19 case via the following link (preferred method): COVID-19 Online Reporting Hotline - Student.
It is going to take a concerted effort to keep our students, staff and families safe. In addition to health and safety measures taken on our campuses, we encourage families to be proactive and to reinforce the importance of hand-washing, physical distancing and face coverings to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Also, please visit our Guidance on Parent/Student Illness page. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID-19 or is awaiting test results, please keep your child at home and notify your school during regular business hours. After hours, please leave a detailed message at the following number, 714-831-1040, or you can submit the COVID-19 case via the following link (preferred method): COVID-19 Online Reporting Hotline - Student. If your child has any symptoms associated with the coronavirus, make sure they stay home and get tested if necessary.
Anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain at home in isolation for 10 days plus at least 24 hours after the resolution of fever (without fever-reducing medication) and improvement of other symptoms. A doctor’s note will be required to return to school. Finally, keep children home when they are sick. Schools will work with students and families to maintain confidentiality and to help continue your student’s education.
