Wayzata Public Schools COVID-19 Information

District COVID-19 Guidelines for 2022-23

Stay Home When Sick

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, stay home, monitor the symptoms and test for COVID-19.

Report All Positive COVID-19 Cases
If Student/Staff Tests Positive for COVID-19 

Isolate Away from Others Immediately

  • You must isolate yourself from others for 5 full days from the date your symptoms started; or if you did not have symptoms, isolate yourself from others from the date you tested positive.
  • You may return to school/work on day 6 if symptoms are improving and you have been fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours.
  • CDC recommends wearing a mask through day 10 after symptoms start, or testing positive if there are no symptoms.
    • What does “symptoms improving” mean?
      • You no longer feel ill.
      • You can do your daily routine just as you did before you were ill.
      • Any remaining symptoms, such as a cough or runny nose, are very mild or infrequent.
COVID-19 Exposure At Home
  • If you live with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and needs to quarantine:
    • You do NOT need to quarantine (regardless of vaccination status).
    • Get tested if you have symptoms and/or five days after the exposure.
COVID-19 Exposure at School
  • We will not be quarantining close contacts who were potentially exposed while at school.
Notification of Positive COVID-19 Cases in Classrooms
