Quarantine & Potential Exposure

Check symptoms to know when you can come to school and when you need to stay home. 

Symptomatic Individuals

Symptoms of COVID-19 may include one or more of these new, changed, or worsening symptoms: 

  • Fever (≥100.4°F) or chills 
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
  • Muscle or body aches 
  • New loss of taste or smell 
  • Cough  
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea 
  • Headache 
  • Fatigue 
  • Sore throat 
  • Congestion or runny nose (If the child is under the age of two and ONLY has congestion/runny nose with no other symptoms, testing and isolation is not required.)  

When symptomatic it is always encouraged to test for COVID-19. If the test results are positive, you should isolate at home to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you do not test for COVID-19 please remember indications for when one may be Too Sick for School. 

Current recommendations for a positive test are to isolate until 5 days have passed since symptoms first appeared and until the following are met: 

  • No fever within the past 24 hours (without medication) 


  • Symptoms have significantly improved.  

Masking is still recommended on days 6 through 10. 

Potential Exposure

Individuals who are exposed to COVID are encouraged to get tested and monitor for symptoms for 10 days after exposure. Recommended to test 3-5 days after exposure to COVID-19 and if negative may consider retesting 24-48 hours (about 2 days) after the first test.
