Covid Testing and Quarantine Info
While you wait for the results of a Covid test your student must remain isolated at home. If the Covid Test is positive, your student must quarantine for 10 days from the symptom onset.
If there is a positive Covid case in a classroom where all students in a classroom are wearing masks, ONLY the positive Covid case must quarantine.
Students who are exposed at school, and who are unvaccinated and/or not wearing masks at the time of exposure must quarantine 10 days from the last day of exposure. Alternatively, If an exposed student has not developed symptoms, they may return to school after taking a test on day 7 of quarantine, if the results of that test are negative.
Students who are vaccinated, and exposed at school, may stay in school. Students who are masked, and exposed at school may stay in school.
If a classroom has a positive case where that student was NOT wearing a mask, all students in the classroom are considered exposed unless they are vaccinated and/or wearing an N95 or KN95 mask. Students who do not develop symptoms may return to school after taking a test on day 7 of quarantine, if the results of that test are negative.
