Quarantine/Isolation/Contact Tracing

All individuals should watch for Symptoms of COVID-19 | CDC, and if they have symptoms, should be tested and stay away from others. Symptoms can arise 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. 

Per CDC guidance,

  • You quarantine when you might have been exposed to the virus. Quarantine means to stay home and away from other people outside the home.
  • You isolate when you have been infected with the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms. To isolate means the sick person stays away from everyone, including people in their home.

Should an employee or student test positive for COVID they are required to notify the COVID Coordinator, isolate for 10 days and not return to work or class until free of fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, other symptoms are improving and the COVID Coordinator has confirmed they can return safely to school.  COVID-19: When to Quarantine | CDC

The COVID Coordinator will work with the local public health department and support contact tracing so that any individuals considered close contacts can be notified.  A contact is defined by the CDC as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour periodFor those considered a close contact who ARE NOT vaccinated, they should get a COVID test within 3-5 days of exposure, are not to return to work or class for 14 days from date of exposure and the COVID Coordinator has confirmed they can return safely to school. 

People who are fully vaccinated DO NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19. However, fully vaccinated people should be tested 3-5 days after their exposure. Should the vaccinated close contact get a positive test result or experience symptoms, they must self-isolate for 10 days or until fever is gone for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, other symptoms are improving and the COVID Coordinator has confirmed they can return safely to school.
