Issue: COVID exposure
Resolution: 14-day quarantine required from the date of exposure. Testing is recommended if the individual becomes symptomatic. A negative test does not end quarantine, unless it is done at the end of the 14-day quarantine period.
Issue: Individual is COVID symptomatic
- If the individual has only one single low risk symptom (fever >100.4, congestion/runny nose, sore throat, vomiting/diarrhea/abdominal pain, headache, body ache), and COVID testing is not recommended by a doctor, the student may return to school when the symptoms improve. If further symptoms appear, testing and/or a doctor visit will be indicated.
- If the individual has symptoms and an alternate diagnosis (something other than COVID-19) is established by a doctor, the student can return to school when recommended by the doctor.
- If the individual has multiple low risk symptoms, or one high risk symptom (cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell), COVID testing is required.
- If the test is negative, the student can return to school when the symptoms improve and there is no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.
- If the test is positive, the student must quarantine for 10 days from the first date the symptoms appeared. At the end of the 10-day period, the student can return to school if the symptoms have improved and there is no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.
