Safely Opening Schools
I think it's a great decision. I think it shows bold leadership from Berkeley Unified. They're using their authority as a local education agency and as an employer to reinstate a mask mandate for students and staff until the end of the year. That's the kind of bold leadership that we want to see throughout the state from different districts.Ana Vasudeo
The Safely Opening Schools (SOS) program is dedicated to assuring that schools can remain safely open for learning by scaling up the use of COVID-19 rapid antigen testing and by promoting policies and practices that increase vaccination and reduce inequities. SOS started as a pilot program with 10 districts in historically marginalized communities throughout California, and now shares those lessons statewide. SOS works in close partnership with the California Department of Public Health K-12 Rapid Testing Program.
