The student/employee will be required to quarantine for 5 days beginning the day the student/employee’s symptoms began or the day they were tested (not the day the results were received). Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the day the test specimen was collected; Day 1 is the first full day after symptoms develop or the first full day after the test specimen was collected. The employee or student also must be symptom-free for 24 hours prior to their return.
No, if a student becomes ill they are not required to get tested for COVID-19. As always, anyone with a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting may not return to school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours. If a student does test positive for COVID-19 they must follow our COVID-19 quarantine policy.
