As per the guidelines set forth by California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Butte County Public Health (BCPH) students may be required to have regular COVID-19 testing in order to participate in some sports or activities provided by ChicoUnified School District. This information is based on guidelines issued by CDPH on February 19, 2021 and amended on March 4, 2021, effective March 5, 2021. As case numbers change, tiers change, and different guidelines apply and therefore information can be confusing or change on a week to week basis. We will do our best to keep you updated and informed as the guidelines change. For full detail on requirements go to: CDPH website “ Outdoor and Indoor Youth and Recreational Adult Sports.”
What testing is currently required by state and local health departments? While our case numbers in Butte County are between 7-14/100,000, we are required to test athletes, coaching staff and volunteers weekly for any sport outside of the current tier the county is in and the results must be received by the health office within 24 hours of competition. A PCR nasopharyngeal swab test is what is recommended and offered through OptumServe.
Where can my student athlete/coach/volunteer get tested? Athletes/coaches/volunteers can choose from an OptumServe testing site: Chico: 900 Mangrove Avenue, Chico: Hours: Monday through Saturday 7am- 7pm Chico State Shurmer Gym: Hours: Thursday and Friday from 9am- 6pm (they will be open during Chico Unified School District Spring Break March 15th-19th) You must register for testing on the OptumServe website: https://lhi.care/covidtesting
What is the cost of testing? There are no out of pocket expenses for testing with OptumServe regardless of whether or not you have insurance.
What if my athlete/coach/volunteer test comes back positive? If you receive a positive test, you must notify the health office immediately. At that time isolation dates will be calculated for the individual, direct contacts will be identified, notified and quarantine dates will be determined following all state and local guidelines. All information is kept confidential per HIPPA regulations.
We recommend starting weekly (Saturday-Friday) testing as soon as possible and turning in the results to the Pleasant Valley High Athletics office as soon as you receive them.
