All confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to Vista Unified school sites and offices will be reported on this Dashboard starting on September 18, 2020. Vista Unified is not including community-related cases for those individuals who have not come onto campus within close contact* of other students and staff. Vista Unified is including all positive confirmed cases for individuals who have been on campus within close contact* of others in Vista Unified school supervised instruction or activities. Once the District learns of an individual who has tested positive at a school site or office, these steps will be followed:


  • Consult with Local Health Officers
  • Clean and treat any affected areas
  • Contact trace within Vista Unified to determine close contacts*
  • Immediately notify anyone within Vista Unified determined to have had close contact* and advise of any required self-quarantine
  • Notify anyone who may have been in proximity, such as in the classroom, school, or office
  • Isolate individuals if present and advise of any required self-quarantine
  • Follow any additional recommendations from the San Diego County Public Department of Public Health

*Close Contact is defined as any individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.


You can view a more detailed COVID-19 Decision Guide for symptoms and exposures here.

Below is a list of all confirmed COVID-19 incidents related to Vista Unified schools and offices. The Dashboard will be updated periodically, based on notification of confirmed cases.  Case counts represent VUSD's official notification date, not COVID-19 testing date or illness onset date. If not viewable on your mobile device, please view the table here.


*Important Note: Vista Unified does not wait to notify close contacts upon initial report of a positive case. However, Vista Unified will wait for official confirmation from the public health department before listing the case on this dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of notifications received and actual number of confirmed cases (when the case is not confirmed positive by public health).

*Vista Classic resumed in-person instruction on Tuesday, October 20th.

Free Testing for COVID-19

The County of San Diego has partnered with the Vista Unified School District and the City of Vista to open a COVID-19 testing site for students, teachers and the general public.

The free, no-appointment site is now open and offers testing from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (closed on Sunday and Monday). The site is located at Linda Rhoades Community Center, 600 N. Santa Fe in Vista.

The new site, which is jointly used by the school district and city residents, has the capacity to test 500 people daily. The COVID-19 tests take about 5-10 minutes and the results generally come back in less than three days.

Additional free testing sites are located throughout San Diego County. Those sites and their operating hours can be found by clicking this link.
