COVID-19: Event Status Updates

Our district is monitoring updates related to the COVID-10 outbreak closely, paying particular attention to recommendations from the Alameda County and State Departments of Public Health as they relate to schools.
 
Decisions about field trips, assemblies, and performances are currently being made at the site level by the principal. We are using the following recommendations to determine whether events will take place, be postponed, or be cancelled.
 
  • Size: Small is better. The risk of getting the virus increases as the size of the crowd increases.
  • Duration: Shorter is better. The risk of getting the virus increases as the duration of the event increases (e.g., a 2-hour event is lower risk than an all day event).
  • Density: Risk of getting the virus increases in crowded settings. If the venue or setting doesn't enable people to keep social distance (more than arm's length of one another), the risk of spreading the virus increases. People should avoid crowded places where large numbers of people are within arm's length of one another.
  • Geographic Reach: Mixing of people across regions, states, and countries
 
Eastin has a number of field trips, assemblies, and performances coming up. I know there are questions about what will be postponed/cancelled and when the community will be notified. At this point, I am reviewing each event on our calendar prior to Spring Break to determine if we should consider postponing or cancelling. As information is changing daily, these decisions may change as well. My goal is to provide a list of events coming up and the current status. Each event will have one of the following:
 
  • Event is Happening
  • Event is being Monitored - Potential for Postponement/Cancellation
  • Event is Postponed
  • Event is Cancelled
