The CDC, California Public Health and The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) officials are making a big push to note that vaccines are proving effective in preventing serious illness and death, including from known variants. The LACDPH is also mandating masks indoors for all people, regardless of vaccination status.
After careful and prayerful consideration on how best to balance medical health and religious or philosophical convictions with the desire to care for our community, our NDHS leadership is encouraging all faculty, staff, and students to be vaccinated prior to returning to campus for the semester. We must prioritize the health and safety of our community - faculty, staff and students - while ensuring a positive student experience and the highest standards of excellence.
NDHS encourages those who have been vaccinated to provide us, for tracing purposes, a copy of their vaccination record. All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to notify NDHS of their current vaccination status by completing the COVID-19 Vaccination Notification Form. This will help us with tracing should it be necessary. NDHS will require and provide random testing of all our community members and those who wish to have COVID-19 swab testing. Upon arrival on campus all students, staff and faculty will be required to check-in via the VisitU temperature testing stations, as a first step toward our best community health.
If you have questions regarding any COVID-related issue or concern, please contact the COVID-19 Coordinator at email@example.com or via phone at 818-933-3620. We look forward to seeing you back on campus soon.
The City of Los Angeles in partnership with the County of Los Angeles and Community Organized Relief Efforts (CORE) is now offering free testing. Testing is by appointment only and is available to residents regardless of if you are or are not experiencing symptoms.
