Respond and protect: With COVID-19 now reported in almost all Gavi-eligible countries, the Vaccine Alliance is providing immediate funding to health systems, enabling countries to protect health care workers, perform vital surveillance and training, and purchase diagnostic tests.

Maintain, restore and strengthen: Gavi will support countries to adapt and restart immunisation services, rebuild community trust and catch up those who have been missed both before and during the pandemic, while also investing in strengthening immunisation systems to be more resilient and responsive to the communities they serve.

Students and school staff in California must wear masks indoors when campuses reopen regardless of whether they’ve been vaccinated, state officials announced Friday, building on newly released federal guidelines on safe school reopening.

According to the state guidelines:

Students and staff in the state are required to continue using masks indoors in school settings, whether they are immunized or not.
The state will continue providing free Covid-19 testing.
Physical distancing in schools is not recommended “due to the obstacles it would present to California schools’ full reopening.”
California’s guidelines are stricter than those issued Friday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which say that students and teachers do not have to wear masks if they’ve been vaccinated. The state is easing up on social-distance requirements, however, saying they’re not mandatory if they prevent schools from fully reopening for in-person instruction. The state is also encouraging frequent testing and community infection monitoring as a way to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Both agencies agreed on the importance of reopening schools for in-person instruction.
