2023-24 School Year COVID-19 Guidance
Stay home any time you're sick, even if you know it's not COVID-19, for at least 24 hours after your fever resolves without fever-reducing medications and your other symptoms are improving. Please refer to the How Sick is Too Sick guidance for more information:
The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.
COVID-19 can be transmitted from person to person through the air. Symptoms of COVID-19 may include cough, runny nose, sore throat, tiredness, body aches, fever, chills, and new loss of taste or smell. Symptoms may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Some people infected with the virus don’t have any symptoms.
Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive should isolate and ask a health care provider about COVID-19 medicine. People who have been exposed to COVID-19 should take precautions, like wearing a mask around others, for 10 days.
Familiarize yourself with your school's illness policies to ensure you follow any school-specific requirements.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. When you cough, cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or arm to prevent the spread of germs.
