Lexington Fayette County Health Department FAQ's about COVID Vaccine

1). Once I receive the 2nd COVID-19 vaccine, do I still need to quarantine if I come in contact with a positive case? Yes


2). If I am positive, can I still get a COVID-19 vaccine? Once you test positive and are finished with your Isolation period (released from Isolation), you can then receive a vaccine.


3). Once I test positive, will I still have to quarantine if I come in contact with a positive case? Not if the subsequent exposure is within 90 days after your initial infection date; however, there could be a stipulation if you become symptomatic after the subsequent exposure.


4). If I am in quarantine from being exposed, can I still get the vaccine? We advise that you stay in quarantine and wait until your quarantine period has ended before getting out to be vaccinated.


5). Do I still have to wear a mask and distance 6 feet even after I receive a COVID-19 vaccine? Yes


6). Is it recommended that I quarantine after traveling to other states or countries after receiving both doses of the vaccine? Yes

Daily Prescreening

Parents will need to fill out this pre-screening form daily with respect to their children who attend Christ the King School. You may submit this either the evening before your child(ren) will attend class on campus, or in the morning before bringing your child(ren) to school; HOWEVER, if you submit this form the evening before and circumstances change between then and the morning, you should resubmit and take action accordingly. A SYMPTOMATIC CHILD, OR ONE WITH A TEMPERATURE OF 100.4° OR ABOVE, SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL.

COVID Contact

As questions arise about the policies and procedures that we have put in place due to COVID-19, we wish for our parents to have a point of contact for their questions. For the upcoming year, our nurse, Kylee Greer, will be available full-time during the school day. She will be our school’s COVID Contact. Please direct your COVID-related questions via email to clinic@ckslex.org or call (859) 266-5641.


If you have any questions about whether your child can be in attendance, please reach out to Nurse Greer, our COVID contact. It is of utmost importance that we maintain the health and safety of our school community.


If your child is in isolation or quarantine, please contact Nurse Greer, so that we can ensure that students can continue learning via the hybrid plan if they are well enough to do so. Her contact information is clinic@ckslex.org

Important Reminders

  • If you test positive or quarantine, please notify the school's COVID contact. We are required to report these during virtual and in-person instruction.
  • If you are in contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more within a 24 hour period, you must quarantine. For the most accurate results, it is recommended that you get tested no sooner than 5 days after your known exposure to the positive case.
  • Quarantining is defined as staying at home for 10 days after the known exposure, watching symptoms and checking temperature twice a day. This means not just quarantining from school, but all public locations.
  • When dropping off students' forgotten materials at school, please leave them outside the school's door, and buzz the front desk to arrange retrieval.
  • Masks must be worn on school property at all times. Please make sure to wear your mask when coming to the front door.

CTK Bulletin

Fr. Wheeler will be giving three talks on Contemporary Problems in Human Sexuality

God's plan for us and our bodies are important parts of how we live out the Christian life. Please come and join Fr. Wheeler for a three-part series on Contemporary Problems in Human Sexuality.


These talks are designed for parents and children in middle school and high school to navigate the confusion that exists in contemporary society about the human person, sexual identity, and how to live fully and authentic Christian lives.


These talks aim to help parents and children to have the tools to have important conversations about God's plan for sexuality and the human body. All are welcome to attend, but please be advised that because of the sensitive nature of the subject material parental discernment is encouraged.


The goal of this series is to address the real life issues and questions that people are facing in the light of the Gospel and of Church teaching throughout history. If you have particular questions, ideas or material that you would like to see addressed in these talks, please reach out to Fr. David Wheeler at dwheeler@cdlex.org.

  • Tuesday, May 4th 7-8 pm - Made by God: Creation and Gender Identity
  • Tuesday, June 1st 7-8 pm - Made for Others: Sexual attraction and Communion of Persons
  • Tuesday, June 29th 7-8 pm - Made for God: A Theology of the Body and Sexual Communion


The talks will take place in Hehman Hall but they will be available by way of ZOOM as well. Due to the pandemic, seating in Hehman Hall is limited to 50 people. We will be using Eventbrite to manage the seating in Hehman Hall.

Thank you to all who attended the Easter Egg Hunt
