What to do if your child tests positive for COVID-19

What to do if your child tests positive for COVID-19

Notify Your Child's School

  1. Send an email to the school's Health Office AND the child's teacher to notify them that your child has tested positive for COVID-19. 

  2. Report your child's absence from school to the school Attendance Office. NOTE: You only need to submit the absence once for the entire time your child is out due to COVID.

    • (Preferred method) Use the SchoolPass app. Be sure to include the reason for the absence as a positive COVID-19 test result in the comments section.  

    • Call the Attendance Line at your child's school. Please include your child's first and last name, spelling of the last name, grade, reason for absence and a return phone number.

Isolate At Home

  • People who test positive for COVID-19 must stay at home until all three of these things are true:
    • They feel better. Their cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms are better; AND,
    • It has been 10 days since they first felt sick or tested positive; AND,
    • They have had no fever for at least 24 hours, without using medicine that lowers fever.
  • If there is a positive COVID case in the household, other students in the household who are not fully vaccinated or have not had a lab confirmed case of COVID in the last 90 days, should stay home for 14 days (which starts after the last day of contact with the positive person).
