COVID-19: Safety Measures

Our Current COVID-19 Guidelines - Summer 2021

Viewpoint’s approach to safely re-opening our campus has always been grounded in evidence-based science. The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. We are returning to in-person learning as rapidly as public policy, virus rates and our commitment to safety and quality allow. As a learning community, we are guided by our values of responsibility, respect, inclusion, and excellence. 
 
  • Safety at Viewpoint is paramount and we will continue to monitor and adhere to local county, city, and state requirements and guidelines. 
  • As California opens up and has removed all outdoor mask requirements regardless of vaccination status, and in conjunction with guidance from LADPH, CDPH, and OSHA, we are no longer requiring masks to be worn outdoors. Masks and 3’ distancing are still required indoors, even for those who are fully vaccinated. 
  • To date, Viewpoint has administered nearly 34,000 COVID-19 tests among its students and employees, with zero on-campus transmissions.
  • The higher the vaccination rate in our community, the more protected we are from the new variant.  
  • As of June 2021, 90% of Viewpoint’s faculty and employees were fully vaccinated.
  • LADPH June 15 update states the below regarding travel:
    • For more details on when a person should not travel, see the CDC’s When Not to Travel guidance.
    • If you’re fully vaccinated, follow the CDC domestic and international travel guidance for fully vaccinated people.
    • If you’re not fully vaccinated, but choose to travel, follow the CDC domestic and international travel guidance for unvaccinated people.
From the onset of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, medical facts, scientific data, and CDC/Los Angeles County guidelines navigated all of the School’s decisions and safety measures. From assembling a COVID-19 task force, to implementing safety protocols and procedures on campus and a robust testing program, Viewpoint School has activated a comprehensive plan in response to COVID-19. Viewpoint recently hosted three pop-up vaccination drive-thru's to punctuate its efforts to protect the health and safety of its community.
 
 
 

 

Our robust safety guidelines and protocol will remain in place. Last summer, Viewpoint worked tirelessly to make our School environment the safest it can be during these times. Please watch below as we transformed Viewpoint into a COVID-19 safe space for our community.
