• STUDENT COVID-19 ISOLATION & EXPOSURE GUIDANCE

     

  • Updated 8/31/22


  • Isolation Protocol Categories  

    Isolation clearance criteria: this criteria only applies to individuals whose symptoms have substantially improved, including being fever-free and off fever-reducing medications for 24 hours AND who can strictly adhere to wearing a well-fitting mask until 10 days after their positive test date. If both these criteria aren’t met, we recommend individuals continue to isolate until 10 days after their positive test.

  • Isolation: students who test positive 

    Isolation: Students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 should isolate at home for at least 5 days. Parents / guardians must notify the school if their child tests positive for COVID-19. If after 5 or more days of isolation, symptoms have resolved, and the student/staff member has tested negative, they may return to school and must mask for the remaining days until day 11 following their first positive test.

     


  • Exposure Protocol (formally known as quarantine) 

    Exposure Protocol: If the student is exposed to someone with COVID-19

    Exposure: Students and staff who have been exposed to COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, are no longer required to quarantine at home unless COVID-like symptoms are present.  Instead, students or staff with a suspected COVID-19 exposure may return to school but are required to wear a mask for 10 school days following the exposure. For students who are unable to mask and who have a reported COVID-19 exposure, they should be offered rapid tests that they can use at home before going to school on days 2, 3, and 5 after exposure.
