Updated COVID-19 Health Guidance

Based on updated health guidance, instead of a minimum isolation period, the CDC recommends people with COVID-19 should stay home and away from others based on their symptoms, similar to how they would for other respiratory infections, like flu and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).

If someone has COVID-19 symptoms, they should still get tested and separate from others immediately. It is recommended that they stay home until they have had no fever without taking fever-reducing medicine and other COVID-19 symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours. If they test positive for COVID-19 but have no symptoms, there is no need to stay homebut precautions outlined in the updated guidelines should be taken upon return to schoolThe DOE will continue to provide COVID-19 tests in schools upon request. Refer to the School Year 2023–24 InfoHub for more health information. Updated guidance on COVID-19 policies for staff  is also available on the Infohub. 

Our schools work hard to avoid the spread of illnesses at school. This is one of the reasons students are required to get certain vaccines before starting school for the first time. For more information visit the DOE Health Guidance Page.
