In response to a case of COVID-19 in our school system, the following steps will occur:
The District will notify Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) for consultation and assessment.
Contact tracing begins. Under recommendations from LCGHD, a person exposed but not experiencing symptoms may be required to quarantine.
Parents/students or staff who shared a space (this includes classroom, bus, cafeteria, or student activity) with the individual who received a COVID positive test result will be notified by the school district within 24 hours.
All District parents will be notified of a COVID positive test result indicating the building associated.
Anyone who meets the definition of having been exposed to the virus will be contacted by the Lake County General Health District and may be ordered to quarantine for the health and well-being of our district and community.
