COVID-19 Contact Tracing Update
The Ohio Department of Health has changed the guidelines for COVID-19 related to contact tracing. The guidance states that schools no longer need to perform contact tracing of students or staff after a positive case is reported.
What has changed:
If your child is a contact of a positive person (case) inside or outside of the school setting, we ask that you still report that to the school nurse.
- The school will implement the Mask to Stay/Test to Play guidance.
- Your child can still attend school as long as they remain asymptomatic.
- They must wear a mask for 10 days from the last date of contact with the positive person.
- No contact tracing will be conducted in the school or for school activities.
What has not changed:
- A parent or guardian is still required to report if your child is positive for COVID-19 to school within 24 hours
- The school will still monitor the level of illness and positive COVID-19 cases reported to the school.
- If an increase in cases is detected interventions could be implemented.
- The school will still notify the families and community when there is a positive case reported.
Please keep in mind that during the winter months there is usually an increase in illnesses. Please continue to screen your child in the morning and if they are ill, please keep them home from school.
Please encourage them to wash their hands and/or use hand sanitizer especially after using the restroom and before lunch.
Mask to Stay/Test to Play Option
Quarantining students at home who have been exposed to COVID-19 in a school environment has the unintended consequence of reducing in-school learning and can be an added strain on parents, schools, and local health departments (LHDs). While vaccination and mask usage are critical components to ensuring a safe school environment, we offer an in-school alternative to quarantining students and school staff at home who have been exposed to COVID-19 in a school environment to support in-school learning and reduce the strain.
This recommendation is informed by a growing body of national experience, a pilot in Warren County, and experience shared by other LHDs that points toward a low number of individuals with direct contact to a COVID-19 positive individual within a school setting who convert to positive cases. Based on this information and the success of the Warren County pilot, we recommend the following for K-12 students and staff exposed to COVID-19 in a school setting.
Please note: Eligibility to participate in mask to stay/test to play is contingent on the exposure being in the school setting or school-related activities. This does not apply to household exposures or exposures outside of the school setting or school-related activities.
