COVID Updates from the Diocese of Orange
Dear St. Serra Catholic Parents,

Dr. Erin Barisano, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Orange, has responded to Governor Newsom's most recent announcement regarding vaccine requirements for schools. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available. Please see Dr. Barisano's correspondence below:
In addition, we have been informed by the Diocese of Orange Catholic Schools that, in order to be in compliance with the State Public Health Officer Order of August 11, all staff/volunteers who are on-site at a school campus by October 15 must either: 
  • show proof of vaccination or 
  • provide a negative COVID test

Beginning the week of October 11, unvaccinated volunteers, or volunteers who choose not to submit proof of vaccination, must test negative for COVID within 72 hours prior to a volunteer activity (e.g., chaperoning a field trip) and provide the negative test results to the school.
Unvaccinated, regularly scheduled volunteers (e.g., classroom helpers, coaches, etc.) who have not submitted proof of vaccination must submit negative COVID test results weekly.
