Updated COVID Quarantine Guidelines (8/1/22)

•     As provided in this Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Rule, school systems must exclude students from attending school in person who has or is suspected of having COVID-19, and must immediately notify parents if this is determined while on campus. As noted in the rule, the exclusion shall continue until the conditions for re-entry are met:

 • For children with symptoms, at least 5 days have passed since symptom onset, and fever-free, and other symptoms have improved.

 • Children who test positive for COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms must stay home until at least 5 days after the day they were tested.

 • Parents must ensure they do not send a child to school on campus if the child has COVID-19 symptoms or is test-confirmed with COVID-19 until the conditions for re-entry are met
