MASKING:

Indoor mask usage will remain optional for all faculty, staff and students.

 

TESTNG POSITIVE/QUARANTINING:

If a student tests positive for Covid- They will need to stay home for at least 5 days (the first day of counting being day 1) from the onset of symptoms (or date of positive test if no symptoms).   They must be fever/vomit/diarrhea free for 24 hours with no fever reducing medicine in order to come back.  Masking through day 10 if back in school is RECOMMENDED.

 

If a faculty/staff member tests positive for Covid-  They will need to stay home for at least 5 days (the first day of counting being day 1) from the onset of symptoms (or date of positive test if no symptoms).  They must be fever/vomit/diarrhea free for 24 hours with no fever reducing medicine in order to come back.  Masking through Day 10 if back in school is REQUIRED.

 

If symptoms are not better after 5 days, the person must stay out as long as needed to meet the criteria for returning: must be fever/vomit/diarrhea free for 24 hours with no fever reducing medicine, with improved symptoms.

 

CLOSE CONTACTS:

The quarantining of close contacts is no longer a recommendation of the CDC.  When we receive notification of a positive case we will count back 2 days from the onset of symptoms or positive test result and see either what class the student was in, or what class/s the faculty/staff member was in.  We will notify the necessary families that someone has tested positive, and to monitor their child for symptoms.

 

REPORTING TO LCHD:

We are no longer required to report positive cases or close contacts to the Lake County Health Department.  We will be updating our Covid CaseTracker and sending in email newsletter on a monthly basis to our community.
