COVID-19 Information

A person is considered to be "with COVID-19" if the person has:

  • Received a positive COVID-19 result from test that has been approved/authorized by the FDA; AND/OR
  • Exhibits symptoms of COVID-19; AND
  • Has known exposure to an individual with COVID-19.
All Extracurriculars are off limits until 10 day quarantine is met.

 

  1. Self-Isolation and Self-Quarantine Orders

    Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms. All Orange County residents and visitors with COVID-19 who are symptomatic shall immediately isolate themselves in their home or another residence.  They may discontinue self-isolation under the following conditions:

    • At least 5 days have passed since symptom onset; AND
    • At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; AND
    • Other symptoms have improved (except that loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation); AND
    • A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved/authorized COVID-19 test (antigen testing is preferred) is negative on or after day 5 from symptom onset. PROOF MUST BE SENT TO THE SCHOOL IN ORDER TO RETURN

    10 Day Isolation Required: If a person with COVID-19 who is symptomatic is either unable to test or chooses not to test, he or she shall isolate for 10 days from symptom onset.

    All persons with COVID-19 who are symptomatic should continue to wear a well-fitting mask around other people through at least day10 from symptom onset.

    Persons who have COVID-19 without symptoms. All Orange County residents and visitors with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic (i.e., they do not have any symptom(s) shall isolate themselves immediately in their home or another residence.  They may discontinue self-isolation under the following conditions:

    • At least 5 days have passed since the first positive COVID-19 PCR; AND
    • An FDA approved/authorized COVID-19 test (antigen testing is preferred) is negative on or after day 5 from symptom onset. PROOF MUST BE SENT TO THE SCHOOL IN ORDER TO RETURN

    • A Person who is self-isolated may not leave his or her place of isolation except to receive necessary medical care.
