Q: What is Social Distancing?

A: Social distancing is a practice recommended by public health officials to stop or slow down the spread of contagious diseases. It requires the creation of physical space between individuals who may spread certain infectious diseases. The key is to minimize the number of gatherings as much as possible and to achieve space between individuals when events or activities cannot be modified, postponed, or cancelled. Achieving space between individuals of approximately six feet is advisable. Additionally, there is a particular focus on creating space between individuals who have come together on a one-time or rare basis and who have very different travel patterns such as those coming from multiple countries, states or counties.

Q: What is LHCSD doing to stay informed about COVID-19?

A: The La Habra City School District continues to monitor the situation and closely work with expert health agencies and other local and state agencies. In addition, Orange County K-12 schools, private schools, universities, colleges, municipalities and other local agencies are  participating in weekly conference calls led by the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) to ensure all have the same accurate information.  

Q: Who is making health and policy decisions related to COVID-19 for our County?

A:   OCHCA is required by California law to take measures necessary to prevent the spread or occurrence of additional cases of specific diseases or any other contagious, infectious, or communicable disease.  As part of this mandate, OCHCA is responsible for health and related policy decisions. 

OCHCA is working with and taking guidance from the CDPH and the CDC, to inform and support our county, including LHCSD.  For questions about COVID-19, County health guidelines, travel advisories, quarantines and other government agency related questions, visit or call:
