COVID-19 School Protocol & Policy
(updated 01.11.2022)
After Travel
You might have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You might feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still be infected and spread the virus to others. People who are not fully vaccinated are more likely to get COVID-19 and spread it to others. For this reason, CDC recommends taking the following precautions after returning from travel.

 

ALL Travelers 

   RECOMMENDED:
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
  • Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements after travel.

If you are NOT fully vaccinated

   RECOMMENDED:

*If You Test Positive for COVID-19 (Isolate)
Everyone, regardless of vaccination status.

 
  • Send proof of the test results to school nurse (lbrokus@tcca-nh.com)
  • Stay home for 5 days. 
    • To calculate your 5-day isolation period, day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed.
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are greatly resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
  • You must continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
  • If you are unable to wear a mask when around others, you should quarantine for the 5 additional days.
  • If you continue to have fever or your other symptoms have not improved after 5 days of isolation, you should wait to end your isolation until you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved. Continue to wear a well-fitting mask. Contact your healthcare provider if you have questions.
  • If you develop symptoms after testing positive, your 5-day isolation period should start over. Day 0 is your first day of symptoms.

If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

 

What to do for isolation:

  • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
  • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • Take steps to improve ventilation at home, if possible.
