Staff will be tested monthly to detect asymptomatic infections by PMH Laboratories. Every two weeks, one half of the staff will participate in this required testing or submit evidence of a test within the same time period. Three completed testing dates were September 11, 2020, October 2, 2020, and October 23, 2020. The next testing date is set for Friday, November 6, 2020.
Students new to Alto must submit evidence of a negative COVID-19 test that was administered a maximum of 72 hours before their entry into school. New and current students returning to the Bay Area via air travel must be tested five days after their arrival and may return to school upon submission of evidence of the negative test.
