COVID-19 Risk Reduction
Maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all students, staff, and visitors remains among the Hawthorne School District's first priorities. The District continues to adopt and implement various procedures to address COVID-19 impacts across all of our sites. We encourage all of our school community members to learn about COVID-19 and take simple actions to help prevent its spread and protect one another from severe illness.
Know which situations are riskier
COVID-19 spreads more easily in:
- Closed spaces with poor air flow
- Close contact settings especially where people close by are talking, singing, coughing, shouting, sneezing, or breathing heavily
How to reduce the risks of COVID-19
Knowing the local COVID-19 Hospital Admissions Level can help you to decide what protective measures to take. This level is reported weekly by the CDC. Everyone needs to take extra precautions when the level is high. When the level is lower, use your situation, personal preferences, and comfort level to decide what to do. Take extra steps to stay safe and protect others if you or the people you spend time with are at higher risk for severe disease.
If you test positive for COVID-19 or if you are a close contact to someone with COVID-19, you must follow all instructions to protect others. See ph.lacounty.gov/covidisolation and ph.lacounty.gov/covidcontacts.
