Vaccines Effective Against COVID-19 and Delta Variant, Vaccinations Rise Nearly 30 Percent

There is no doubt that vaccines in San Bernardino County are working against COVID-19 and variants of concern, including the Delta variant, with only 4% of cases since February 1, 2021 occurring among the fully vaccinated.

“The State makes policy for our local public schools and our local school boards have the heavy task of implementing those State mandates at the classroom and student levels,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “The County has no jurisdiction over schools, and the County has no legal standing to exempt schools from State mandates. What the County is offering to do is lend our public and private schools the benefit of our highly trained personnel, best practices, and other resources to help them achieve their goals.”

San Bernardino County Back to School Task Force efforts will include: 

· County Public Health teams that will be available to visit school sites and offer advice on safety measures.

· Making safety supplies and gear available to schools in need.

· Having health educators from County Public Health and Arrowhead Regional Medical Center available to visit middle schools and high schools to discuss COVID-19 vaccines.

· Instituting a quick-response team to provide testing, contact-tracing, and infection-prevention services to K-12 schools and higher-education institutions in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak.  

“After almost a year and a half struggling outside of the classroom, all of us owe it to our students, parents, teachers, and other school personnel to make this long-awaited transition back to campus as smooth and as safe as possible,” Chairman Hagman said. “That was the inspiration behind this program.”
