CDC Recommendations for Quarantine The CDC’s current recommendation is to quarantine for 14 days. This is the gold standard as it allows for close to 0% chance of spreading the infection post-quarantine. Based on new evidence and understanding of Covid-19, there are a few more options that would provide for a somewhat shortened quarantine period: A person may leave quarantine after 7 days IF they have a negative PCR test and IF they have had no symptoms the entire duration of their quarantine period. Test must be taken on the fifth day of quarantine or later, using Vault at home tests ordered from the state (these are free for Wyoming residents). (https://health.wyo.gov/publichealth/infectious-disease-epidemiology-unit/disease/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-at-home-testing/) Person must not display any symptoms on any day of quarantine A person may leave quarantine after 10 days if they have no symptoms for the entire duration of their quarantine. *** If a person meets the criteria to leave quarantine “early”, after day 7 or 10, they must continue to monitor for symptoms and remain asymptomatic through day 14. The CDC also states they must wear a mask in public through day 14 as well.
From Superintendent Monteith ~ First Positive COVID-19 Case As expected, we had our first positive case of COVID-19. Our partners at Public Health contacted the school immediately and followed up with contact tracing. Within a few hours it was determined that no other students or staff would be required to quarantine. Our implementation of mask wearing and social distancing is working! Thank you to our partners in Public Health! Thank you to students, staff and parents for your support in adhering to our plan! Because of your efforts our schools will stay open!!
Don't forget that our Open House is today! Please come by last name: A-D 2:00-3:00 E-J 3:00-4:00 K-Q 4:00-5:00 R-Z 5:00-6:00 Kindergarteners- come at your assigned time for screenings. Remember to bring your face coverings! We'll see you soon!
