When a student or staff member exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 at school, they will sent immediately to the school’s Extra Care [Isolation] Room, staffed by a health professional. Negative Air Pressure is applied to this space to prevent circulation of the virus.
With prior parent permission, the individual will be tested for COVID-19 using the Avid Binex Now antigen test. Once tested, regardless of the result, the student goes home with a recommendation to consult their medical provider.
Testing information is relayed to County Health, who will launch contract tracing as needed.
