Coronavirus Information

As this is an unusual situation, information could change rapidly. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.

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

The safety and well-being of the students and staff of the Brentwood Union School District (BUSD) are the District’s highest priority. In response to a novel (new) coronavirus, called COVID-19, that is causing an outbreak of pneumonia illness, the District is committed to keeping our community informed with the latest developments as they relate to our schools.

The COVID-19 outbreak began in December, 2019 in Hubei Province, China, but outbreaks are 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, where the Brentwood Union School District is located.

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 and other health systems to track the situation locally and has sent information about coronavirus to local medical providers, emergency medical services providers, and schools.

Brentwood Union School District is partnering closely with our County Office of Education as well as with local health agencies to monitor new developments with the illness and to ensure that we are following the most up-to-date guidelines set forth for schools in order to prevent and postpone the spread of the disease.
