Symptom Onset and/or a Positive Case of COVID-19 Infection
Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 or experiencing an onset of multiple symptoms of COVID-19 during the school year must report that to the administration of CLHS.
Schools and local health departments are encouraged to keep schools open and operating as much as possible. If someone experiences symptoms or has been tested and is positive for COVID-19, that student and potentially those in recent close contact may be required to stay home for several days for the purposes of health assessment and contact tracing.
