Per the CDC as of August 11, 2022 , "quarantine is no longer recommended for people who are exposed to Covid-19." Since quarantine is no longer recommended, contact tracing will not take place. If a student or employee feels they have been exposed to an individual with Covid-19, they may choose to wear a mask for 5 days (NOT required). Masks are always optional, but not required if you feel you have been exposed.
This applies to exposed individuals in the household as well. If a student or family member tests positive, no one in that household is required to quarantine unless they test positive as well.
Testing positive for Covid-19: Individuals who test positive for Covid-19 must quarantine for 5 days, and wear a mask for 5 days upon returning to campus. Students who test positive must provide documentation of positive test (or note from a physician), in order for absences to be excused.
All individuals who test positive for Covid-19 must report their positive case to the District Point of Contact (POC), Brianna Goodman, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 870.201.2577 between the hours of 8am-4pm.
Hand Sanitizing and Cleaning
Hand washing and sanitizing will be encouraged for all students and staff throughout the day. The Cedar Ridge custodial staff will continue with cleaning measures that were implemented in the 2021-2022 school year.
