TK – 6th School Waivers

To support a safe opening, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (DPH) will consider each community represented by schools requesting a waiver and exercise due caution in issuing approvals. DPH will approve waivers every 1-2 weeks as a way to fully consider the impacts before issuing additional approvals in a particular community.

The State will give consideration to waivers when a school’s respective community case rate is 14 daily cases or less per 100,000 residents.

School Waiver Status

Below are waiver applications that have been received by DPH as well as each applications’ status. Applications are reviewed by Dr. Erin Gustafson, County Interim Health Officer and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

The table below will be updated Monday through Friday unless otherwise noted.

APPROVED Has 14 daily cases or less per 100,000 residents. The school can resume in-class instruction according to their approved plan.
RESUBMITTED School was previously denied but daily cases reached 14 cases or less per 100,000 residents. DPH automatically resubmitted the waiver to CDPH for reconsideration on behalf of the school.
PENDING School waiver is being reviewed by DPH/CDPH.
DENIED Has over 14 daily cases per 100,000 residents. Once daily cases reaches 14 cases or less per 100,000 residents, DPH will automatically resubmit waiver to CDPH for reconsideration on behalf of the school. The school does not need to resubmit a waiver.
