For the most up-to-date information and guidelines from Contra Costa Health Services, please visit their website at www.contracostahealth.org.

The COVID-19 outbreak began in December 2019, with outbreaks now occurring in other countries around the world. There have been a number of confirmed cases of novel coronavirus reported in California, including here in Contra Costa County.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and other public health agencies are monitoring this new disease. Contra Costa Health Services is working closely with its partners to track the situation locally, and continues to provide information, as it becomes available, to local medical providers, emergency services, and school districts.

OUESD is partnering closely with the Contra Costa Health Services, County Office of Education, as well as other local and state agencies to monitor new developments with the illness, and to ensure that the District is following the most up-to-date guidelines set forth for schools and individuals in order to help prevent and slow the spread of the disease.

Mental Health and Social Emotional Resources:

We want all of our Oakley Union Elementary School District community to know their health and safety is our priority.  During times of uncertainty, it is important to concentrate on the physical and emotional health of students, staff, and families.  We have created this COVID-19 resource page with various resources, activities and hotlines to reach out for assistance.

In the event that this is an emergency, dial 9-1-1 for immediate help.
