My student has been told to stay home due to COVID-19. Now what?
What does this mean?

Contact your student’s healthcare provider to receive further direction and/or consider getting your student tested if you haven’t yet.
Contact the school and let them know
·Stay home until ALL these conditions are met:
- At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.
- Symptoms have improved.
- No fever for at least 24 hours without fever reducing medicine.
·Keep your students in a specific “sick room” or area and away from other people or animals, including pets. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
·If your student has symptoms of COVID-19, without a known exposure, and they receive an alternate diagnosis by a healthcare provider and/or their COVID-19 test is negative, you may go back to daily activities 24 hours after student’s fever and other symptoms resolve. Documentation of an alternate diagnosis and/or negative test would need to be provided to the school upon return.
