Requirements for Reporting Cases at Your School
Schools and programs serving school-aged youth must notify LAC Department of Public Health (DPH) of all clusters of 3 or more cases of COVID-19 in a classroom, office, or other pre-defined or identifiable group (i.e., cohort, team/club, etc.) who were linked and on campus at any point within the 14 days prior to illness onset date. Refer to the TK-12 Schools Exposure Management Plan for additional details.
Notifying Staff, Students, and Families of Actions to Take for Isolation and Close Contacts
Schools and programs serving TK-12 youth can adapt these exposure notification letter templates for notifications to students and staff on actions to take if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or if they had an exposure to a person with COVID-19 during their infectious period while at the site.
Youth Recreational Sports Programs
If an individual with confirmed COVID-19 participated during their infectious period in any games, tournaments, or other Youth Recreational Sports Program-related activities involving other teams, the Youth Recreational Sports Program Compliance Officer should notify close contacts on their own team AND notify the opposing team(s) of potential exposure. Compliance officers for all affected teams need to work collaboratively to notify individuals who meet the criteria for having been exposed. (Refer to the Youth Sports Programs Exposure Notification Letter Templates.)
