COVID 19 Guidance 2023-2024 School Year
What to do when your child might have COVID-19.
Child is sick with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or has a positive COVID-19 test.
Child stays home and isolates away from other people to the extent possible.
Is the child fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication?
Is the child free of symptoms or have symptoms improved?
Is the child 2 years of age or older and able to consistently wear a mask in our program? OR Did the child have two negative antigen tests 48 hours apart?
NO: Continue to days 6–10
It is safest to continue isolation until the end of day 10
For children who have symptoms, continue isolation until the child is fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms have improved.
AFTER DAY 10
Return to the program. For children who were severely ill, or whose fever persists past day 10, or who continue to test positive using an antigen test, consult a healthcare professional before returning to the program.
