As of February 28, 2023, the Governor terminated the state’s COVID-19 State of Emergency. He also phased out the executive actions put in place since March 2020 as part of the pandemic response. Although the state of emergency has been lifted, Yu Ming will still follow the most recent guidelines from the ACOE and CDPH for COVID prevention in schools.

If your student tests positive for COVID, do NOT send them to school, email COVID@yumingschool.org right away.
