August 21, 2020 NEWS STATEMENT: Statement from Tulare County Public Health regarding Schools and Day Camps

Tulare County Public Health is aware of local schools choosing to operate as Day Camps in providing instruction to children on-site under the guidelines provided by California Department of Public Health. Although, under current guidance this is allowed in the State of California, Tulare County Public Health does not have any regulatory authority or oversight of Day Camps, and therefore cannot approve or deny a school from operating as such.

Due to the current epidemiological data reporting high case transmission and positivity rates in Tulare County, Public Health Officials are concerned and discourage any effort to congregate children from multiple households as it poses a risk of significant spread of COVID-19.

We are in communications with local school officials and encouraging the practice of distance learning as much as possible until COVID-19 case rates decline. Ensuring the health and safety of children, teachers, staff, and all of their families is our top priority.
