@HSD Health Update

April 25, 2022

The Daily COVID Questionnaire - No Longer Active as of Tuesday, April 26

  • As shared in prior @HSD Health Communications, the daily COVID questionnaire for students and staff, recently revised, was to remain in use at least until April 14.
  • Although case rates have risen, reported cases in the district remain low; there are currently five active cases reported.
  • As a result, effective tomorrow, April 26, the daily COVID questionnaire will no longer be required for students or staff.
  • However, all members of our community must remain vigilant and aware of any COVID-like symptoms. Please stay home when you are ill and take advantage of the 3x weekly testing clinics (see below for more info) and utilize our free Rapid COVID tests that are being distributed.
  • HSD also strongly encourages all community members to follow the CDC's guidance on vaccinations and boosters.
