COVID 19 Quarantine Procedures Q and A

Some questions have come up regarding quarantine procedures.


As a reminder, a person is considered a contact when they have been within 6 feet of a person who has tested positive for COVID 19 for 15 minutes or more without a mask or when they have been within 3 feet of the person for 15 minutes or more with a mask.  


Keep in mind, in most classrooms we cannot keep all students 3 feet apart from each other so your child may be seated closer than 3 feet to 1 to 2 students.  We try to match who they sit by in art, music, and PE but the seating options in these spaces are not exactly the same as the classrooms so it may add another student to the mix.  


In addition, we seat students at lunch based on their classroom seating to limit the number of possible exposures.  HOWEVER, lunch is unmasked and so the distance becomes 6 feet.  This means the number of possible exposures can be anywhere from 2 to 4 students depending on where they sit at the table.


If your child is considered a contact we will provide you a letter with the quarantine dates and guidelines.  The length of a typical quarantine is 10 days from the last date of exposure.  Individuals may test on days 5, 6, or 7 from their last contact with a positive person.  If the individual has a negative COVID19 test on days 5, 6, or 7, the individual may return on day 8.  The test results must be submitted to the school.


If your child has been exposed and is considered a contact,  the question as to whether to test or not is certainly up to each family.  Here are some of the things that we have found out.  If your child is not having any symptoms and you test and they test positive then the 10 days starts over from the date of the positive test.  You have to weigh the advantages of knowing versus not knowing and a shortened quarantine versus a longer one.  If your child is having any symptoms, it may be a good idea to have them tested so that you know and if they are positive then you can closely monitor their health and yours ; in addition, they would not need to be quarantined again any time in the following 90 days from their positive test if they are considered a contact during those 90 days.  


Finally, if anyone in your family is exhibiting symptoms or they are being tested for COVID19 then please keep all children in your family home until you know the results or have an alternate diagnosis.  This will help limit the spread and/or need for quarantines.  Thank you for your help and support.
