Dear Vandalia CUSD #203 Parents and Guardians, We are pleased to share that the isolation and quarantine period for students and staff members sick with COVID-19 or considered a close contact has been reduced to five days. Today, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education announced the agencies have adopted CDC guidance for P-12 schools that halves the isolation and quarantine period. (The Centers for Disease Control updated its guidance for P-12 schools on January 6: Overview of COVID-19 Quarantine for K-12 Schools | CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/k-12-contact-tracing/about-quarantine.html
). As a result, effective immediately, Vandalia CUSD #203 will implement the updated guidance. As soon as possible, we will contact staff, students and families who are currently impacted by a quarantine with a revised return to school plan. Vandalia CUSD #203 CDC/IDPH Updated Isolation/Quarantine Guidance for P-12 Schools January 7, 2022 Isolation/COVID positive- quarantine for 5 days from symptom onset or positive test result day if asymptomatic. Can return on day 6 as long as symptoms are improving and fever free for 24 hours. The employee/student must wear a mask for 5 days. Refusing to mask will extend the isolation period for the full 10 days. Quarantine/close contact unvaccinated- must quarantine for 5 days. Can return on Day 6 with a negative test recommended and must mask for 5 days. Refusing to mask extends the quarantine time to 10 days. Close contact to a household positive (unable to isolate away from the positive)- Day zero starts on the last day of exposure. The child must quarantine for 5 more days until Day 10. (example: Mom is positive and can not isolate from her children. The child's day zero begins after the mother’s 5 days.). Close contact to a positive who is able to isolate away from the positive- Day zero starts on the last day of exposure. The child must quarantine for 5 days. May return on day 6 masking until day 10. Vaccinated students & staff that are asymptomatic do not need to quarantine. Masking for 10 days and testing on day 5 are recommended. Thank you for your continued support of our students and staff. Take care, Dr. Jennifer Garrison
