Keeping Our Students Safe & In School
A Plan for the 2021-22 School Year

Positive COVID-19 Isolation Requirements

After testing positive for COVID-19, you must isolate for 5 full days and may return on day 6 ONLY if you are feeling well and are able to wear a well-fitting mask at all times, other than when eating, on days 6-10. A negative test is not required to return to school or work as long as you have met the isolation requirements.

A new COVID-19 Reporting System has been put in place that will inform the school health office of positive COVID-19 cases and household close contacts. Please fill out this form if your student has tested positive for COVID-19, or is in a household where someone has tested positive. The new reporting form can be found using the link below.

Household Contact Quarantine Requirements

Household contacts who are not exempt must quarantine for 5 full days, the first day starting the last time you were in close contact with the person who tested positive before they went into isolation. You may return on day 6 with a negative molecular test that must be taken on day 5 if you are able to wear a well-fitting mask at all times, other than when eating, on days 6-10. If at any time you experience symptoms while in quarantine, get tested as soon as possible.  

Quarantine is not required for the following household contacts: 

  • Ages 18 and older who have received the primary vaccination series and booster
  • Ages 5-17 who have received the primary vaccination series
  • Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days
