      • A person who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be required to wear a mask for 5 days after the 5 day quarantine.

      • A person who is an asymptomatic close contact will wear a mask for 10 days.

      • A person who returns from COVID symptoms without a negative test or alternative diagnosis will be required to wear a mask for 5 days after the 5 day quarantine.

    • Positive cases and close contacts will be entered by staff in the district’s reporting tool.

    • Schools will continue cleaning and notification procedures in the event a positive case is on school grounds within the 48 hours of onset symptoms or positive test (whichever occurs first).
