Students and school staff across San Diego now have access to a digital platform that provides the protocols needed if exposed to COVID.
The Sweetwater School District confirmed Monday that the San Diego County Office of Education will now be offering a digital version of the decision tree.
The original version of the decision tree has played a significant role in the district’s K-12 schools, as a tool to guide students and staff if they had been recently exposed to COVID, or had been experiencing flu-like symptoms.
Additionally, the district stated that they have expanded the SDSU National Institute of Health test program to schools such as Chula Vista Middle, National City Middle and Montgomery Middle School.
The school district also reminds the public that weekly tests are required for students participating in extracurricular events such as homecoming events, athletics, band and other activities.
The district says the weekly tests should be taken at least 72 hours before the event takes place, regardless of the student’s vaccination status.
