  • Upgraded HVAC filtration from MERV 8 to MERV 13 
  • Bipolar Ionization units and HEPA Air Purifiers is targeted areas such as hallways without HVAC, weight rooms, and band/choir rooms 
  • Face masks (cloth, disposable, or N95) are available to all staff and students
  • Hand sanitizer in every classroom
  • Handwashing stations and cleaning wipes in multiple locations
  • Cleaning and disinfecting protocols, including electrostatic sprayers on campuses and buses
  • Isolation and quarantine protocols per CDC and CPDH guidance
  • All Kern High staff are required to get vaccinated or take part in weekly COVID testing, due to state public health order.
  • PCR COVID tests are available at school sites to all staff and students
  • Rapid antigen COVID tests are available at the District Office to all staff and students
    • Appointments are required and can be made by following the testing links on this page
  • At-home tests may be used if exposed or symptomatic to determine if positive. However, at this time, only clinical or KHSD rapid tests will be accepted to reduce a 10 day isolation period.
