What to do if you have a positive COVID-19 individual in your house and how it effects your student(s)
Contact the schools your child attend
The positive COVID-19 case needs to isolate
Depending on when the positive case started isolating, determines the last date of contact for the non-infected household members
If the student is Unvaccinated, the student must quarantine at home away from the positive individual. They may return to school with a negative COVID-19 test on Day 5 or later from the last time they were in close contact with the household member and may return to school after Day 7. The student should wear a mask and continue to self-monitor through Day 14. An updated visual to assist with this guidance can be found by clicking on this link: COVID Exposed & NOT Vaccinated - How to Quarantine, or by scrolling down on this webpage.
Your child's school building will be able to assist you with navigating return dates and completing school work during these times.
Reminder: Antibody tests are no longer being accepted as proof of immunity.
