• Schools will still need to report cases of COVID-19 and families should still keep their child home if they are sick. If a child gets sick at school, a parent or guardian will need to bring the child home.

    Quarantines

    • A 14-day quarantine for unvaccinated close contacts is considered the best health practice. However, schools may consider using a shortened exclusion period for unvaccinated contacts exposed in school or childcare settings (see: COVID-19: When to Quarantine).
    • Individuals who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine if exposed to a positive case unless they develop symptoms. They should be notified of a positive exposure and should be encouraged to monitor for symptoms. Testing should occur if symptoms develop.
    • Unvaccinated students/staff exposed to a COVID-19 case in their own household should be excluded for a full 14 days AFTER the last day of exposure. This could be as long as 24 days if they are unable to isolate within their household.

     

  • Visitors & Volunteers

    Visitors and volunteers are welcome in our buildings. However, just like with students, we would ask that you stay home if you are exhibiting any symptoms.
