Vaccine and Testing Attestation

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Outside Organization Workers

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) wants to thank you for the AMAZING support you provide to the students, staff and families in our District.  The service you provide continues to make a positive difference to all.

On August 11, 2021, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued an order requiring all public and private schools serving TK through 12th grades to verify the vaccination status of all “Workers” and require those who are unvaccinated to undergo at least weekly diagnostic screening testing.  “Worker” is defined for this policy to include all NMUSD certificated and classified employees, contractors, volunteers, and any other paid and unpaid adult serving in the District or who is working on-site at a school campus supporting school functions.

NMUSD stands committed to remain open while maintaining the safest possible environment for our students and staff.  We are implementing the following requirements to meet this commitment and the CDPH Order:

  • All staff must verify vaccination status and unvaccinated staff will undergo weekly screening/testing
  • All volunteers who are on-site at a school campus must provide proof of vaccination
  • All outside organizations must attest that the “Workers” they provide on-site at school campuses are fully vaccinated or that a weekly screening/testing program is in place for all who are unvaccinated (see attached Outside Organization COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation Form).

“Workers” from outside organizations that have completed the COVID-19 vaccination attestation process will be welcomed back onto our school campuses on October 18, 2021.  All “Workers” from outside organizations that have not completed the COVID-19 vaccination attestation process will not be allowed onto our school campuses until the vaccination attestation process is completed or until further notice.
