Quarantine Rules with the MOD Schedule - April 26, 2021
One consequence of our move to a MOD schedule is that some students will be within 6ft of each other at times during the day, although students are masked at all times indoors except when eating.
The Cook County Health Department has informed us that if we have a positive case, contact tracing at school will result in requiring quarantine for any student within 6ft of a COVID positive student. A quarantine in that case would need to be 14 days. In many cases this could mean an entire class would need to quarantine.
So far, we have not had any positive cases at school since our return to a MOD schedule. However, this quarantine guidance shows why it is important to keep students home and get students tested if they are symptomatic.
