Local Student Athletes "Take the Shot"

Getting vaccinated is safe, free and will help our communities get back to normal. Together, let’s get to immunity and keep our schools open next fall.​

 


 




Reopening Schools

On July 17, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that if a county has been on the State Monitoring List within the prior 14 days, a school must conduct distance learning only, until the county has been off the monitoring list for at least 14 days. ​​

Effective August 31, 2020, the State of California revised the criteria for restrictions on activities, including the opening of schools. We are now following a color-coded, tiered system based on two indicators: rate of new cases and positivity rate. ​

Schools in the Widespread (purple) tier are not permitted to reopen for in-person instruction, unless they receive a waiver from their local health department for Transitional Kindergarten through 6th grade. Schools can reopen for in-person instruction once their county has been in the Substantial (red) tier for at least two weeks.

Merced County is in the undefinedRedundefined Tier of the State Monitoring List.​
