• COVID-19: Return to routine disease control model in schools

    Students and staff should stay home when sick. Report any illness or positive tests to the school attendance line or your supervisor (as you would with any other illness: Flu, Strep, etc.) and return to school or work when all symptoms are improving and fever, vomiting, and diarrhea free for 24 hours without the use of medication. 

    Testing is recommended for anyone with COVID-like symptoms.

    Refer to How Sick is Too Sick for additional information on symptoms, common illnesses, and when to stay home.

    If students or staff test positive for COVID:

    • Must isolate at home for 5 days from symptom onset or test date if asymptomatic. 

    • Return on day 6 as long as all symptoms are improving and fever, vomiting, and diarrhea free for 24 hrs without the use of medication. 

    • Continue to mask for 5 more days after returning to school/work.

    • Staff, please report positive tests and your return dates to your supervisor
