    • On day 7 with a negative test result. You must wait at least 7 days after your exposure to be tested. You can end quarantine if your test is negative and you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you are exposed to someone at school who tests positive for COVID-19, you can continue to come to school if:
    • You are fully vaccinated.
    • Both individuals were wearing masks at the time of exposure.
    • You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days.
