OSA COVID-19 SAFETY PLAN
Fall 2020 (Sessions 1 and 2, and perhaps longer)
Date 8/20/20 Version 1
The following safety protocols include guidelines that may change to reflect updated research, updated state and county recommendations, Ventura County public health order changes, and other factors. If significant changes go into effect for One Spark Academy, this Safety Plan will be updated.
We understand that within our community, there lies a range of those who are more or less at-risk of serious illness (or death) should they develop COVID-19 and, as such, there is a range of concern over how much exposure to others that our varied community members are willing to maintain.
While we understand that the risk of coronavirus transmission is currently low in our community, our Safety Plan is based on reducing risk as much as possible, across the board. Should any student or staff member get sick and potentially pass that on to others, the entire OSA program would be impacted. So, we have opted to be prudent in our approach. As long as the county, state, country and global community struggle to manage this pandemic, we are not taking any chances of “sharing our air”. The continued good health of our students, their families, and our staff is of the highest priority.

The OSA COVID-19 Safety Plan was developed in consultation with Dr. Bryan Fine. It is intended to represent guidelines based on a point in time, subject to change as more information becomes available.
