School Districts Are No Longer Required to Verify Employee, Contractor, and Vendor Vaccination Status.

On September 13, 2022, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) rescinded it’s August 11, 2021, State Public Health Officer Order (Order). The Order has required K-12 school districts and county offices of education to verify the vaccination status of all school workers and conduct weekly COVID-19 testing of workers who are not fully vaccinated.  Beginning September 17, 2022, school districts and county offices of education may no longer need to verify the vaccination status or weekly testing of school workers such as employees, contractors, vendors, and unpaid volunteers. Please note that each school district or county office of education must determine if there are LEA-specific policies that maintain the obligation to test or verify vaccination status, notwithstanding the CDPH order. Stay tuned; the firm will publish more on this topic in the near future.
