COVID Safety Measure Updates
Reporting Test Results
Please send all test results to firstname.lastname@example.org with the individual’s name and either positive or negative test result in the subject line. Photos of test results are acceptable. The negative test result is understood as clearance to return to school.
New Exposure After Recovery
If you are exposed to COVID-19 again at school (a new exposure) within 180 days of testing positive for COVID-19 and do not have symptoms of COVID-19, you don’t need to quarantine. Originally the guidance had a 90 day limit. – Salt Lake County Health Department
Quarantine & Vaccinated Individuals
Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine even if they are exposed to someone who tests positive- this includes exposure to a household member. We know there is a small chance vaccinated people can get COVID-19 and pass the virus to other people, so to be very safe we suggest vaccinated people get a COVID-19 test as early as 5 days after exposure. Following an exposure, we ask all vaccinated individuals to have strict adherence to wearing a mask at school and to restrict their interactions as much as possible. In addition, we expect careful monitoring for COVID symptoms for a full 14 days following an exposure. At the start of this school year we had been advised that the school guidance for vaccinated individuals did recommend quarantine if it involved an exposure to a household member, this has since been cleared up. – Salt Lake County Health Department
