UPDATES to Guidelines for K-12 Student Quarantine
Today, the Ohio Department of Health announced updates to its COVID-19 Fact Sheet: Guidelines for K-12 Student Quarantine and the flow chart with Guidelines for Quarantine After Exposure in K-12 Classroom Settings.
Specifically, updates were made to clarify that the guidance applies for contacts who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. The person who tested positive for COVID-19 should follow standard isolation procedures.
Additionally, quarantine should be required if the student or teacher is not fully vaccinated, and layers of prevention were not in place as described above.
Thank you for all you do for Ohio’s students!
