    Our recommendations for self-isolation for persons who test positive and/or are symptomatic and self-quarantine for close contacts (persons within 3 feet of physical distance between students in a classroom) in school settings remains the same with the addition of recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals (it has been ≥ 14 days after the last dose of COVID-19 vaccine): 

    • Self-isolation (positive cases):
      • It has been 10 days since the onset of symptoms (or since testing positive in the absence of symptoms)
      • They have been fever-free for a full 24 hours without the use of fever-suppressing medications
      • Symptoms have improved 
    • Self-quarantine (close contacts):
      • Exclusion for those who are not fully vaccinated until:
        • A full 10 days have passed from last date of exposure without testing
        • A full 7 days after exposure and have received a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later)
      • Contacts should continue to monitor for signs/symptoms for a full 14 days after the last date of exposure even if they have met criteria to discontinue self-quarantine.
