The Ohio Department of Health has released new contact tracing and Covid-19 protocols for all K-12 schools. While the new information is good news it presents challenges for us as a school district as how to proceed and how to keep our students safe and healthy. The main points of the updated guidance are:
Students and Staff who test positive are still required to isolate at home for 5 days after symptom onset. If symptoms and fever have subsided after 5 days, they may return to school, continuing to wear a face covering for 5 additional days.
