BL Covid-19 Updates



Hello Parents, Students, and Student Athletes,

  I want to inform you of some revised COVID up dates for isolation and quarantine we received from the Logan County Health Department.  

Isolation for positive person: Home isolation is 5 full days after the positive test or symptom onset, whichever comes first. This is followed by 5 full days of strict mask wearing. If your student cannot wear a mask then this would be 10 full days of home isolation. If you have any athletes that come back to school after their full 5 days of isolation, they can do things with the team as long as they can mask for the next 5 days. Ex: A bowling athlete can keep his/her mask on while he/she bowls so when he/she returns to school after his/her 5-day isolation, he/she will not have any restrictions as long as he/she keeps his/her mask on. Alternatively, a basketball player cannot keep his/her mask on while actively playing basketball. 

Quarantine: Schools have a mask-to-stay option instead of quarantining at home.  This means that if a student is exposed at home, they can continue to come to school as long as they wear a face mask and do not have symptoms. If they become symptomatic then they would need to isolate, with the assumption that they have COVID-19. To clarify, this is from last known exposure.  So if a student lives with a COVID-19 positive parent, and parent is unable to isolate in their home, then this could mean masking for up to 20 days. If you have students that cannot mask, this would be a full 10 days quarantine at home after the last known exposure.  Also another option would be to quarantine at home for 7 days from last exposure, and if you are symptom free you may test on day 5, 6, or 7.  If you have documentation of a negative test and no symptoms you may return after your full seventh day of quarantine without a mask if you wish. 

 

Please note it is best practice at this time to test on day 5. This can be very confusing to navigate so please do not hesitate to reach out for guidance or to report exposure and positive cases. You can contact Nurse Amanda Siefring at
[email protected] or call 937-599-0627.


The above guidelines are not mandates, but advisable to follow. All students who are ill should stay home until fever free for 24 hours without medication and well enough to return to school.

 

Thank you, 

Amanda Siefring RN
