Dear RUSD Families,
 
Both the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Guidance and California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal-OSHA) guidance related to COVID-19 have been updated. As with previous updates, the Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) continues to evolve its practices and protocols as it relates to the guidance legally required by the State of California.
 
Rocklin Unified has also updated its RUSD Guidance. Here is a summary of the major changes:
 
  • The quarantine period for persons exposed to a positive COVID-19 case has been reduced to five days. Asymptomatic persons with a negative test result on day five may return to school/work on day six.
 
  • The isolation period for persons positive for COVID-19 has been reduced to five days. Asymptomatic persons with a negative test result on day five may return to school/work on day six.
 
 
  • The results of At-Home Tests (Rapid Antigen tests recommended) may be utilized to clear persons to return to school/work in the above scenarios. A negative At-Home Test result may also be used to return a person to school/work who is asymptomatic after 24 hours have passed and symptoms have resolved.
 
  • RUSD will require the submittance of an At-Home Test Validation Form to allow students and staff to return to school/work with an At-Home Test result.
 
  • Cal-OSHA does not allow employees to self-administer At-Home tests if they are surveillance testing weekly. Therefore, RUSD will continue to provide at school and after school testing for employees in this category.
 
CDPH has also changed the definition of “Fully Vaccinated” to include only those who have received their initial series of vaccination(s) (two of either Pfizer or Moderna or one Johnson & Johnson) and the vaccine booster. If persons are not yet eligible to receive a booster shot (click here to find out), then they are deemed exempt from this requirement and are still considered “Fully Vaccinated” until they become booster eligible.
 
The impact of this is that only “Fully Vaccinated” persons (staff and students) qualify for the modified quarantine, which allows them to remain at school/work after an exposure to a positive case.  If persons are no longer considered “Fully Vaccinated”, then they would be required to quarantine for five days (see above) if exposed to a positive case.
