Covid Protocols

  • (REVIEWED 7-13-2023)

    Employee Protocols

    All district employees are considered "essential, critical infrastructure workers." 

    The following procedures apply:

    • If an employee is exposed at work or outside the district and DOES NOT have symptoms, he/she may come to work as long as he/she doesn't have symptoms. The employee must remove himself/herself from the COVID-positive person. The employee will be tested on days 1 and 3 as long as tests are available.

    • CDC recommends wearing a well-fitting mask for 10 days from the last day of contact.
    • If an employee has symptoms, he/she must stay home and take leave until he/she is fever free for 24-hours, symptoms have improved, and then has a negative test.

    • If an employee has a positive COVID test, he/she must take leave and stay home for at least 5 days after the onset of symptoms (or date of positive test).  The employee may return if he/she is fever free and symptoms have been reduced after this 5-day period. The CDC highly recommends that masks be worn for an additional 5 days after a person who has tested positive for COVID returns from a 5-day isolation period.

    • Employees must contact their supervisor if they have been exposed, have symptoms or received a positive test for COVID-19.

    • Employees must enter sick leave days in Frontline. Principals/Supervisors shall complete the Covid Tracking Form for positive tests only. 

    • Positive cases will be reported to the Health Department.
