For Clarification on the procedures Meigs Local utilizes when exposure occurs and is identified please see the information below. 

GUIDELINES AFTER EXPORSURE(MASK TO STAY/TEST TO PLAY OPTION)
This information was release on October 25th, 2021. 

The summarized points are as follows: 

Mask to stay option - applies to participation in the classroom following exposure in school setting/activity  - Direct contacts, regardless of vaccination/masking status, may remain in classroom if:

  • Wear a mask for 14 days after last date of exposure;
  • Self-monitor/parent-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19;
  • Isolate and get tested if they start to experience symptoms associated with COVID-19 regardless of severity of symptoms;
  • Students and staff may discontinue these exposure procedures after 7 days if they meet two criteria:
    • 1. don't develop symptoms and
    • 2. test negative between days 5 to 7 after exposure - this is the so-called 7-day quarantine option that has been in place for a long time.

While parents and students are responsible for symptom monitoring under this guidance, if a school staff member/nurse sees a child exhibiting symptoms they should act accordingly.

Test to play option - applies to extracurricular activities- following exposure in classroom/school environment may continue to participate in school activities if:

  • wear masks when able (on bus, in locker room, on sideline - any time can reasonably mask AND
  • test on initial notification of exposure - right away once advised they have direct contact, AND
  • test again between days 5-7 following initial exposure

If negative at that time they qualify to test out of quarantine after day 7.  Tests can be PCR or antigen test - they should be proctored or observed, not entirely self-administered.  Can't be an over-the-counter test that is entirely self-proctored.
