Case numbers and testing positivity rates remained stable this week in Sacramento County. The adjusted case rate was 4.5 cases per 100,000 residents while the testing positivity rate, adjusted for equity, was 3.7 percent. The County remains on the orange tier of the state’s COVID-19 risk assessment system for one final week. On June 15, the state is expected to retire the risk assessment system and ease many of the health precautions put into place under the tiers.
What will happen after June 15?
State officials have yet to release revised school guidance that is expected as they lift the tiered system throughout the state. Once released, district staff will review and assess what changes are needed to practices in summer programs.
Cal/OSHA, the regulatory body that oversees workplace safety, today rescinded its proposed guidance amendments. This means the existing guidance will remain in place past June 15 which will require, among other things, that employees continue to wear face coverings in the workplace. Cal/OSHA officials have expressed that they do expect to revise their guidance and are working to do so sooner rather than later. As soon as a formal update is provided, district staff will update safety guidance for staff members.
