A Note from Nurse Yoly

When to Return to School After Illness


*If you have been tested and diagnosed positive with COVID-19, you may return to work or school with one of these options:

1. If you have not had any symptoms of illness, or if symptoms are resolved for 24 hours without taking medication, you may return on day 6 with “Monitor, Mask and Stay Protocol.” A mask is required for days 6-10. KPBSD staff and students who have COVID-19 and symptoms that have not resolved by Day 5 should continue to isolate through Day 10, or whenever symptoms are resolved without medication for 24 hours.

2. If you have COVID19-like symptoms but choose not to be tested, you may return to school no sooner than 6 days after the onset of symptoms AND symptoms resolved for 24 hours without taking any medicine to reduce the fever.

*If you have COVID19-like symptoms, and test negative via one molecular test, or two antigen tests (per manufacturer instruction), you may provide the test result to the School Nurse and return to school 24 hours after symptoms resolve with no medication.

*If you have symptoms and visit a doctor who tests you for COVID-19 and determines your symptoms are caused by something else besides COVID-19, you can provide a doctor's note and return to school 24 hours after symptoms resolve with no medication.

*If you feel the symptoms were caused by a chronic problem, such as allergies, please consult your School Nurse. You may return after symptoms resolve with a Health Care Provider alternate diagnosis exemption.

*If you are vaccinated and develop symptoms of illness, experience loss of taste or smell, or have been exposed to a positive case, COVID-19 testing and wearing a face covering may be required for attendance. Consult your School
