Glendale Unified will begin voluntary self-testing for all employees beginning in March through a partnership with Valencia Branch Laboratory. Employees will have an opportunity to take a self-administered, observed nasal PCR test every two weeks.
Daily Health Screen
Glendale Unified conducts daily temperature checks and health screens for students and employees. All students and employees are asked to stay home if they are sick or have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive or demonstrated symptoms of COVID-19. Touchless digital thermometers are available at all school and district facilities and are used as-needed based on public health guidelines.
On-Campus Quarantine Protocols
Students who present with COVID-19 symptoms while on campus report to a designated quarantine area and their parent/guardian is called to pick them up immediately.
Glendale Unified works closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to implement strict contact tracing protocols in the event of a COVID-19 exposure at a school or district facility.
In October, Glendale Unified launched the GUSD COVID-19 Dashboard in order to provide accurate and transparent information to the community regarding COVID-19 cases at school and district facilities. Dashboard data is updated daily and includes the total number of on-campus students and staff, cumulative and current confirmed cases, and positivity and on-site transmission rates for every district school and work location. In order to protect student and employee privacy, the Dashboard does not include names or personal information.
