How To Report A Positive Case

Under state law, families should notify their child’s school within 24 hours of learning the child has tested positive for COVID-19. FCPS employees who test positive must also inform the district. Fayette County Public Schools has established a COVID-19 Hotline for processing these notifications, which must be submitted to the Kentucky Department for Public Health.

Please choose one of these three ways to alert FCPS:

Families and staff may also email the COVID-19 team for follow-up phone contact to gather additional information or to address any questions.
