FAQ - Most common questions to current Covid-19 experiences:

What is the definition of a “close contact”?

A close contact is someone who has been within six feet of an infected person for more than 15 minutes in a 24-hour period.

What does it mean exactly that my child has to quarantine?

Under a regular quarantine, your child should stay home and away from others as much as possible for up to 10 days in case they have been infected. Your child may also be eligible for a “modified quarantine” and can return to class under certain conditions. 

How long does my child need to remain in quarantine?

In cases involving unvaccinated students in which at least one person was not wearing a mask, quarantine can end after 10 days if your child doesn’t develop symptoms. Quarantine can end after Day 7 if a test collected after Day 5 comes back negative.
 

In cases where both people were masked, a close contact is eligible for a “modified quarantine” and will be allowed to return to class under certain conditions:

  • The close contact remains symptom-free
  • Continues to mask appropriately o   
  • Gets tested 2 times/week during 10-day quarantine. (CCHS recommends testing immediately after exposure notification and then 3 days apart.) 
  • Does not participate in extracurricular activities, including sports, during the modified-quarantine period.
