Health & COVID-19

On October 31, 2022 - Washington's COVID-19 State of Emergency ended and all mandates were lifted.
COVID-19 Guideline from the Department of Health (updated 4/4/24):
If you have respiratory virus symptoms that are not better explained by another cause (such as allergies) or test positive for COVID-19 or another respiratory virus, follow CDC guidance for staying home and away from others; this includes people you live with who are not sick.
Normal activities may be resumed if both of the following have been true for at least 24 hours:
• Your symptoms are getting better overall, and
• You have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication)
You can tell your symptoms are improving when you start to feel better and you feel well enough to fully participate in your activities, such as learning in a classroom or completing tasks at work. A respiratory virus infection can have many types of symptoms, some of which can last beyond when someone is contagious (able to spread the virus), such as a lingering cough. Having a single symptom or a combination of symptoms is not as important as the overall sense of feeling better and the ability to resume activities.
Previous protocol during the 2023-2024 School Year:
Anyone with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 must be out of school for 5 days and may return on day 6 if they are fever free.
