Quarantine Exception for Schools and Child Care Programs (K-12) • Exposed students, teachers, and staff who are not fully vaccinated (i.e., are unvaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series) can attend or work at school and eligible childcare programs for school-age children (see definition below) during the quarantine period only if they are participating in a test-to-stay program. • Exposed fully vaccinated students, teachers, and staff who must quarantine because they are not up to date (i.e., have not received a CDC-recommended booster when eligible) can attend or work at K-12 school and eligible childcare programs for school age children during the quarantine period. However, these individuals must continue to quarantine as otherwise required outside of school. o These individuals attending or working at a school with a test-to-stay program should participate in that program. o If the school does not have a test-to-stay program, then it is strongly encouraged that these individuals test at day 2-3 (or the first school day after the exposure is identified) and day 5.
Isolation VS Quarantine
Isolation is for individuals who have been infected with COVID-19, even if they don’t have symptoms. You isolate in order to prevent spreading the virus to others.
All COVID-19 tests are now acceptable. If using a home test, you must have two negative tests, one at 24 hours and another at 48 hours.
