The comprehensive COVID-19 Communicable Disease Management Plan has been updated for the 2021–22 school year. State requirements and recommendations for COVID mitigation in schools have changed significantly since the preceding year. The district’s plan for 2021–22 reflects the change in guidance and key practices for reducing the spread of COVID in schools.

Eugene School District 4J’s plan prioritizes the return to full-time, in-person instruction, as required for all Oregon school districts. It outlines health and safety protocols for district staff, students and community members across 4J schools, buildings and programs, including community-based programs located in school buildings.

Health and safety protocols include:

  • face masks required indoors for all students and staff
  • vaccination to be required for staff and volunteers
  • optional weekly COVID-19 testing for students
  • 3 feet of physical distancing to the extent possible
  • ventilation upgrades including bipolar ionization air purifying units installed in all schools’ HVAC systems
  • routine cleaning of high-touch surfaces, and
  • frequent handwashing

This plan supplements the district’s communicable diseases procedures in JHCC-AR and GBEB-AR by providing guidance specific to the COVID-19 pandemic and meets the requirements of ODE’s Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework for the 2021–22 School Year and OSHA’s Rule Addressing COVID-19 Workplace Risks (OAR 437-001-0744).
