Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) issued the following information on Monday, October 13 regarding the reopening of schools in Contra Costa County.

Elementary and secondary schools (TK-12th grade) in Contra Costa County are now allowed to reopen for in-person instruction without a waiver or permission from Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS).

It will be up to each school/district to decide when and how to safely reopen for classes.

Contra Costa Health Services will continue to provide schools with support for safely reopening, contact tracing and other COVID-19 related issues. Earlier this year, CCHS and the County Office of Education developed reopening guidelines for schools, which include recommendations on wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distancing in classrooms.
