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.
