FAQs-Covid Isolation and Quarantine-1/9/22

  • Positive student in a positive case household:
    • If a child tests positive and then a household member tests positive a few days later, the child can exit isolation after 5 days if they meet the criteria (fever free for 24 hours and symptoms significantly improved).
    • They do not have to continue quarantining because of the family member, because they are now in the 90 day window where they don’t have to quarantine if they remain asymptomatic. 
  • Asymptomatic, unvaccinated student in a positive case household
    •  As before, the quarantine of an asymptomatic unvaccinated contact to positive household members begins when the isolation period of the positive household member ends.
    • So if a parent is positive and meets the criteria to be released from isolation on day 5, the child’s quarantine then would start on day 6.
    • If the child cannot wear a mask, their quarantine should extend for 10 days; household contacts that can routinely and consistently wear masks, can observe a 5 day quarantine.
      • For this example of the very young child, this would result in a total quarantine period of 15 days (5 days of the parent’s isolation and then 10 days of the contact’s own quarantine). 
      • Regarding the use of the home test in this situation, I would suggest the home test be used on day 5 of the child’s quarantine (which would be day 10 total, 5 days after the isolation of the household ended and then 5 more days after that)
