When to Stay Home

    • Please closely monitor all children while a household member is in isolation at home for a positive case of COVID. The positive household member is infectious and can transmit COVID up until their 10th day of isolation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    • If other household members begin to show COVID symptoms during the household member's isolation, they should test for COVID and if positive (may be a home test) to begin 10 days of isolation and are not to go in public or return to school or work until they have been fever free for 24 hours, have improved symptoms, and *May return after 5 days of isolation and it is CDC/LDH recommended if wearing a well-fitting mask for the remaining 5 days. 

    • If you are in close contact with a positive case, and begin to have symptoms of COVID and test, if that initial test (home test) is negative, a PCR test will provide an accurate result.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
    • Following a COVID positive diagnosis and 10 days of isolation, repeat testing is not recommended due to the possibility of false positive results, and less likely to be shedding the virus or infectious.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
    • Those positive and completing their COVID isolation (10 days), will not quarantine as a close contact for 90 days; if they remain symptom free.
