Updates to COVID-19 Testing Availability, Requirements

The COVID-19 State of Emergency declared in California is set to end on February 28, 2023, marking a milestone moment in the response to the pandemic and the start of a new phase for our schools and community.

In alignment with this shift, the Santa Cruz County school districts and the County Office of Education will be phasing out the school-based COVID-19 surveillance testing program . This opt-in testing program will be discontinued effective March 1, 2023 . Please note that this change does not impact the School Community Testing program, which will remain available at five sites throughout the county at no out-of-pocket cost.

After March 1, families will be able to use over the counter (OTC) home-based antigen tests to satisfy the testing requirements.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

The Santa Cruz County Office of Education (COE) is opening its vaccine clinics to all community members, not just students and staff. Testing times are extended at the COE, PVUSD and Cabrillo College, until 5pm on Weds. You can find updated information on the linked flyer.


Following recent approval by the FDA and CDC, the Western States Scientific
Safety Review Workgroup also recommends either the Pfizer or Moderna bivalent booster to be given 2 months after the primary series or the last booster dose. The Moderna bivalent vaccine is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 18 years of age and older and the Pfizer bivalent booster is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 12 years of age and older. The bivalent vaccines provide superior, up to date, protection against the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and the current circulating omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5.
