COVID Testing ClarificationIf a student or staff member receives COVID testing for any reason, then other family members need to remain off campus until COVID test result is negative. (A rapid test would be ideal in order for your children to return to campus as quickly as possible.

COVID Exposure & Siblings ClarificationIf a sibling is sent home due to exposure, then the other siblings and parents do not have to remain off campus unless the exposed individual begins showing symptoms of COVID. At that point, the entire family would need to quarantine until the exposed, symptomatic individual receives his/her test results.

Rational on 14 day QuarantineThe rationale behind the 14 days of quarantine is because thus far research has shown that individuals can test positive up to 14 days after exposure to someone that has tested positive for COVID. So let's say an individual was tested on day 5 after exposure and tested negative, technically that individual could still be positive for COVID on day 14 after exposure. Thus, right now the CDC recommends that individuals quarantine 14 days after exposure due to this possibility. Now, if in quarantine one was to test positive, then that individual would then follow a different timeline. So unfortunately, at this time, even if one tested negative after exposure to someone that tested positive, the exposed individual would still have to quarantine the full 14 days unless that individual ended up testing positive. There is no "lesser term".
