    Test Results:
    • Negative:  child/staff and household members can return to school/work
    • Positive:  positive individual isolates for 10 days from onset of symptoms, other household members quarantine 14 days from when positive individual begins isolation

    If a member of a child's/staff's household is a close contact of a positive case, other members do not need to quarantine unless the close contact household member develops symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19. Close contacts should monitor themselves closely for symptoms and if they develop symptoms, seek medical advice and testing.
