COVID-19 Update

MTS COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS - OMICRON. DELTA & OTHER VARIANTS


  • No single intervention can fully prevent COVID-19. By layering multiple safety measures, Berkeley families and providers can help protect our youth and minimize missed time participating in school, sports and social activities.

  • The most important safety tools to protect against COVID-19 are:

  • COVID-19 Vaccines: Vaccines are the most effective protection against COVID-19 for adults and children at least 6 months old. They are free to all

  • Indoor Masking: Making sure that children use effective masks consistently and correctly helps reduce spread of the virus

  • Staying home when sick: Keep or send children home when they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms

  • COVID-19 testing: Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or that have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 should get tested

Wearing a mask will optional this summer. Although not required, masks may be the single most important safety item we can use to prevent the spread of Covid-19 variants Delta, Omicron and other new variants.
