  • Work will be accessible.
  • Return to school will be dictated by ODH and Clinton County Health Department requirements.

Communications when a student/staff member has been diagnosed
with COVID-19:

  • Communication will come from the Health Department, not the school district.
  • The school district will cooperate with the Health Department’s work in social tracing.

County Health Department:

  • The school district will utilize communication from the Clinton County Health Department explaining/defining “exposure” to COVID-19 that would necessitate quarantine.

    • 3 days with no fever (without using fever reducing medication) AND
    • All symptoms improved AND

    • All recommended quarantine requirements have expired.
  • Before returning to school, the student/staff member must provide communication and/or documentation to the school regarding their plan to return and must validate that all criteria for returning to school have been accomplished.

If a positive COVID-19 case occurs and the individual has been in school within 48 hours:

  • Contact tracing is needed. Anyone that was within 3 feet of the individual for 15 minutes or more from 2 days prior to symptom onset will need current quarantine protocols applied.
