The San Diego County COVID-19 e-Decision Tree for K-12 Schools (e-Decision Tree) is a digital representation of the San Diego County COVID-19 K-12 Decision Trees, which were created and are maintained by the San Diego County Office of Education and County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Public Health Services.

The e-Decision Tree is developed by the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California San Diego (UCSD) in collaboration with the UC San Diego School of Medicine Division of Child and Community Health and the San Diego County Office of Education to assist school administrators in determining the appropriate actions for when students or school personnel exhibit COVID-19 symptoms or are exposed to COVID-positive individuals, and what testing procedures to follow.

  • PDF and Spanish language versions of the San Diego County COVID-19 K-12 Decision Tree, and the answers to frequently asked questions on the decision trees are available at www.sdcoe.net/decisiontree.

  • The San Diego County COVID-19 K-12 Decision Trees are endorsed by the San Diego Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics – California Chapter 3 (San Diego and Imperial Counties.)

  • The e-Decision Tree is designed for use by schools in San Diego County, based on guidance from the California Department of Public Health and San Diego County’s public health orders.

For San Diego County Schools:

  • School leaders are required to report to public health services at 888-950-9905 as soon as they become aware of a positive case on campus.

  • For help with questions on exposures, symptoms or other related issues, school leaders in San Diego County may also call the county Epidemiology School Line at 619-692-8636 and leave a message.
