As Vacaville Unified School District enters its second month of the 2021-22 school year in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, officials will present an update on how the district is responding to the pandemic at Thursday’s school board meeting.
The update will be presented by Assistant Superintendent Sasha Begell and Abigail Hilliard, communications and crisis manager. The contents of the presentation have been included in the agenda for Thursday’s meeting.
Currently, masks are required for students indoors and optional when they are outdoors. If a student is unmasked and exposed to someone who tested positive, they will be required to quarantine for 10 days. If they came into close contact with a positive patient and were unvaccinated, they will be required to submit a test up to twice a day and will be barred from extracurricular activities, even if they were wearing a mask.
