Furthermore, if ANYONE in your household is staying home because of any symptoms (even just one), then EVERYONE in your household must isolate.

 

This isolation period for the symptomatic individual can end when ANY of the following happens:
  • There is a negative COVID-19 test
  • There is an alternate diagnosis from a medical professional
  • 10 days have passed since the symptom started, and it has not gotten worse, however, the remainder of the household must isolate for 14 days after the last contact with the symptomatic individual

This is a change, Bulldogs!  Please know that this applies to our students and their families, and our staff and their families.  This could present significant challenges over the course of the next few months and we thank you for your patience and support in advance.
