Isolation - Covid-19 Q's and A's

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

 

Isolation

 

What does this mean?

Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.

 

Your student has been diagnosed with COVID-19

 

OR

 

Your student is waiting for their test result

 

OR

 

Your student has symptoms of COVID-19 but has not been tested or exposed

 

Isolate your student from others

 

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:

  1. At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.

AND

  1. Symptoms have improved.

AND

  1. 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.
