Someone considered to be a close contact of a positive case
Anyone who has spent 15+ minutes within 6-feet of someone who has tested positive, including the 48 hours prior to their positive test or onset of symptoms. (i.e. If someone tests positive on Friday, we consider Wednesday and Thursday contacts as close contacts). Due to the nature of preschool settings, all students in a classroom with a person who has tested positive is considered to be close contacts
We accept Rapid, PCR, and at-home antigen testing unless otherwise noted
A program designed to test close contacts/exposed students while they continue to attend school
Remaining at home after a known or highly likely exposure (i.e. international travel)
For close contacts, the last known day of exposure to a positive case is called “Day 0,” and subsequent days are counted forward from that day. For individuals who develop symptoms and test positive, whichever event happens first is considered “Day 0;” for individuals who are asymptomatic and test positive, the day of their positive test is considered “Day 0.” Subsequent days are counted forward from that day, with Days 5 or 10 being considered end of quarantine (depending on symptom development) and Days 6 and 11 being possible days of return to school/public, respective of symptom development
Currently, these are the symptoms (list)
