    Masks are still strongly recommended when:
    • Indoors and around others for all students, employees, and campus visitors.
    • On school buses
    Masks are required for anyone that has had direct exposure to an individual who is COVID-19 positive.

    Symptomatic Individuals
    • All individuals experiencing symptoms similar to COVID-19 (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or Diarrhea) must remain off campus, take a COVID-19 test (both PCR and Antigen tests are accepted) and report results to the Health Coordinator.
    • If the test returns positive, individuals must follow isolation orders as listed by LACDPH.
    • If the test returns negative, individuals can return to campus AFTER at least 24 hours fever free have passed AND all other major symptoms have subsided.
    Exposed individuals
    • Close contact is defined as sharing an indoor airspace with a confirmed positive individual for a cumulative stretch of 15 minutes over a 24 hour period.
    • The Health Coordinator will notify Individuals identified as close contacts. 
    • Exposed individuals must wear a well-fitting and highly protective face mask for the duration of 10 days after last exposure AND monitor for symptoms AND test for COVID-19 3-5 days after last exposure.
    Vaccination
    • To attend Mirman School, all eligible students, faculty and staff must be fully vaccinated as defined by the CDC, as well as a booster dose. A new, Omicron-specific booster is anticipated in September, and we update the community when it will be required.
    Visitors/Volunteers
    • All visitors and volunteers must present proof of full vaccination and booster (if eligible) prior to accessing our campus. 
    • COVID-19 vaccination requirements must be submitted and verified through SchoolPass. Please click here for information on how to submit your vaccination record.
    • For indoor gatherings, all attendees must present a negative Antigen test (within 24 hours) or a negative PCR test (within 48 hours).
    • For large gatherings indoors or outdoors (defined as 25+ individuals), we ask that visitors self-test and self-check for symptoms prior to entering campus. Our policy continues to require everyone to wear a mask at large gatherings indoors.
    Travel Guidelines
    All students, faculty and staff returning from summer vacation must submit proof they are negative using one of these two options:
      • A negative Antigen test administered within 24 hours of return to campus
      • A negative PCR test administered within 48 hours of return to campus followed by an Antigen test administered 2-3 days after the initial test 
    Free Antigen tests can be requested through the Federal Government here.
  • State and City Guidance

    According to state directives, reopening for public and independent schools in Los Angeles County is tied to the state's COVID-19 watchlist. This list is based on several factors; chief among those factors are positivity rates. As of this writing, Los Angeles County is in the state's Purple Tier.* More information about the watchlist and reopening requirements can be found at the following links:
    * Please note there is no set timeline for protocols as all guidance is based upon state and county requirements, which are subject to change.
