Health SafetyStudents/staff quarantine and isolation requirements

(updated Jan. 19, 2022)

NEW: Isolation update for students/staff who test positive for COVID-19

Isolation has been reduced to 5 days at home since symptom onset or positive test, with a return to school on Day 6. To be able to return to school on day 6 symptoms must be absent or resolving, no fever in the past 24 hours with no medication. Upon return, the person will need to continue to monitor and wear a well-fitting mask for the next 5 days (days 6-10). A negative test is no longer required.

Quarantine guidance for close contacts of a positive COVID-19 case

Who Does Not Need to Quarantine:

  • Ages 18 or older with all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters
  • Ages 5-17 with the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines
  • Those with medically-confirmed documentation of COVID-19 within the last 90 days

Who Must Quarantine:

  • All ages who have not completed a primary vaccine series
  • Ages 18 or older with only the primary series of recommended COVID-19 and not a booster that was given at least 14 days prior

Quarantine ends 5 full days after the last close contact, with a return to school on day 6, if no symptoms have developed, and after receiving a negative test result. A negative test will need to be taken no sooner than day 5. Home antigen tests are currently acceptable during this Omicron surge period. If the test is negative, the person will need to continue to monitor for symptoms and wear a well-fitting mask for the next 5 days (days 6–10). If the test is positive or the person chooses not to test they must remain in quarantine for 10 full days and return to school on day 11.

*For those ages 18+, the third dose (booster) must have been administered two weeks prior to the exposure to be considered fully boosted.

*For household exposures the quarantine time could be longer if isolation is not maintained at home. We need to consider the last day of contact with the person who has COVID-19 while infectious.



On Aug. 18, 2021, the governor mandated all K-12 school employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is available to anyone 5 years and older at this time.
