Quarantine After Exposure
Quarantine decisions for students and employees who may have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 will be made with the county health department.  

  • Quarantine at home if you are exposed to COVID-19 and are not fully vaccinated.  We consider anyone who was within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes, to be exposed.  
  • Under the standard quarantine protocol, you can end quarantine:   
  • On day 10, without testing. You can end quarantine 10 days after the last time you had close contact with the person who tested positive if you don’t have symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • On day 7 with a negative test result. You must wait at least 7 days after your exposure to be tested. You can end quarantine if your test is negative and you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • If you are exposed to someone at school who tests positive for COVID-19, you can continue to come to school if:  
  • You are fully vaccinated. 
  • Both individuals were wearing masks at the time of exposure. 
  • You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days. 
  • You were wearing a N95 or KN95 mask at the time of exposure. 
  • OR IF YOU:   
  • Wear a mask at school for 10 days. 
  • Wear a mask at school for 7 days and then get tested. If you test negative on day 7 you don’t have to wear a mask anymore.
