Students testing positive for COVID-19 must isolate for five days and may not attend school during that time. Following the isolation period, the student may return to school on Day 6 (with Day 0 being the date of the positive test for someone who had no symptoms or the date of the onset of symptoms for someone who was symptomatic) under the following conditions:
- Without a mask if they have a negative test on Day 5 or later.
- With a mask if they have not taken a subsequent test but have completed the five-day isolation period.
- Without a mask after 10 days (no test is needed in this case).
In all of the above scenarios, a student returning to school must have improving symptoms and be fever-free without the aid of medication for at least 24 hours.
