Should I send my child to school?
SHOULD I SEND MY CHILD TO SCHOOL?
Student tests Positive for COVID 19 - 10 day isolation and must be 24 hrs symptom free
Student General Exposure - 14 day quarantine and 24 hour symptom free (meaning exposed at school, work, church etc)
Household Exposure - 10 day for the positive COVID 19 case in the house + 10 days for the student(s) quarantine and symptom free.
If a COVID test is not done, and your student has symptoms of COVID 19 (or anyone else in the home), the ill child will not be permitted to school for 10 days and be 24 hours symptom free. Other students in the house will not be permitted back for 20days (see household exposure above).
If your child has COVID like symptoms it is recommended you contact your health provider. A positive test on record shortens a household exposure and general exposure quarantine. A positive test on record also prevents your child from needing to be quarantined for future exposures for 90 days. Positive COVID patients are felt to have immunity for 90 days.
