Important Information

COVID-19 Testing

  • The K-12 Protocols have been updated. You may view the updated protocols on our website along with additional resources relating to COVID which include isolation and vaccine information.

    CDPH recommends that antigen tests be considered the primary option for detecting Covid-19 in schools. Test kits are available for students/staff who are symptomatic considered a close contact, or for any employee needing to test weekly at their school site. Additionally, free test kits mailed directly to your home may be obtained by visiting https://www.covid.gov/tests.

    When To Get A Test:

    • If you have COVID-19 symptoms (i.e. fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headaches, congestion, runny nose, nausea, body aches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, short of breath, loss of taste or smell)

    • If you have been a close contact to someone with COVID-19

    • If you have COVID-19, to see if you can end isolation early

    If you had COVID-19 within the last 90 days, testing is not recommended unless you have symptoms.

    If you have symptoms and you have a negative test, it is recommended that you keep staying away from others and get another test 1-2 days later. This is because these tests are more likely to miss early infections. For self-tests, make sure to read and follow all test instructions correctly. You can also retest with a molecular test, i.e. PCR.

    Isolation Instructions:

    If you test positive for COVID-19 – stay home and away from others for a minimum of 5 days from the onset of symptoms. Inform your close contacts of possible exposure. You can leave isolation on day 6 or later if all of the following conditions are met:

    • You get a negative result taken on or after day 5

    • You have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine

    • Your symptoms are improving, or you have no symptoms

    • Wear a mask indoors through day 10

    OR You can leave isolation on day 11 without testing, as long as you have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine.

    Instructions for Close Contacts:

    You do not need to quarantine for being a close contact as long as you have no symptoms. You are required to:

    • Get tested 3-5 days from last exposure or earlier if symptomatic

    • Wear a mask indoors and outdoors when in close contact with others for 10 days

    • Continue to monitor your health for 10 days and test right away if symptoms start

  • New Digital Photo ID Card through Minga!

    Bellflower Middle/High School students will now be able to utilize the app called Minga as a digital ID card! The app enables staff to create hall passes, reward students for doing well and helping others, and the digital ID card will help students have an easier time entering or leaving campus. The digital ID has a "live" interface, with a running digital clock and a moving background, thus preventing students from using a screenshot. Students will utilize their school email (via Google) to log in. The app is safe to use, uses very little data, and doesn't require access to any of the information stored on your phone. If your child does not have a smartphone, don't worry - they will receive a printed ID card as well. 

    Click here to read more about Minga, and how students sign in with their school email.
