If a Student or Staff Member Tests Positive for COVID-19

If a student or staff member is diagnosed with a confirmed* COVID-19 illness, the school should be notified immediately (preferably the building COVID-19 Supervisor or school nurse). Once notified, the building COVID-19 Supervisor will initiate a COVID-19 Positive Case Report Response.  

If the staff or student who tested positive is currently at the school during their infectious period, they should report to the school isolation room and/or return home immediately regardless of if they are experiencing symptoms. If a staff member or student is not in the building, they should not come to work or school. 

*A confirmed case is defined as a person (with or without symptoms) who received a positive result from a COVID-19 laboratory test.
