5 TIPS FOR HEADING
BACK TO SCHOOL
We know students are happiest learning
amongst their friends — and they learn better
too! Use these 5 proven tips to keep your kids
healthier and their school environment safer.

Get vaccinated or boosted against COVID-19.
Getting vaccinated is much safer than the risks of
getting sick with COVID-19. Rigorous clinical testing
has shown that these vaccines are safe and effective
for everyone. Vaccines also help reduce the spread
of new variants so students can continue to be in
school safely.

Stay up to date on all routine vaccinations.
Vaccines prevent many diseases that can harm
your children, including whooping cough, measles,
hepatitis B, HPV, and COVID-19. Check with your
child’s healthcare provider to make sure they are
up to date on all their vaccinations.

Keep a mask in your child’s backpack.
Masks are strongly recommended in all indoor
settings including schools, school buses and
childcare, and may be required by your school
district or county. The right mask matters! Kids
are best protected with well-fitting N95, KN95,
KF94, or surgical masks.

Keep your kids home & test them for
COVID-19 if they’re sick.
Most viral illnesses, including COVID-19, are most
infectious just before and in the early days of
having symptoms. If your child is experiencing a
sore throat, cough, congestion, fever, body aches,
fatigue, shortness of breath or nausea, keep them
home and isolated to protect others.

Check local recommendations in your county.
School districts and counties may establish local
COVID-19 masking and testing requirements. It’s
important to regularly check on the latest local
guidance based on county transmission levels
with emerging variants.

Call your child’s healthcare provider
or health clinic to get your child
vaccinated. Or go to MyTurn.ca.gov
or call 833-422-4255 to find a
vaccination site near you.
