MTS COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS - OMICROM, DELTA & OTHER VARIANTS
No single intervention can fully prevent COVID-19. By layering multiple safety measures, Berkeley families and providers can help protect our youth and minimize missed time participating in school, sports and social activities.
The most important safety tools to protect against COVID-19 are:
COVID-19 Vaccines: Vaccines are the most effective protection against COVID-19 for adults and children at least 6 months old. They are free to all
Indoor Masking: Making sure that children use effective masks consistently and correctly helps reduce spread of the virus
Staying home when sick: Keep or send children home when they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms
COVID-19 testing: Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or that have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should get tested
Wearing a mask will optional this summer. Although not required, masks may be the single most important safety item we can use to prevent the spread of Covid-19 variants Delta, Omicron and other new variants.
