@HSD Health Update

March 22, 2022

Current COVID Metrics

Big picture

The Daily COVID Questionnaire

  • As shared in prior @HSD Health Communications, the daily COVID questionnaire for students and staff, recently revised, will remain in use at least until April 14. If case rates remain steady/low, this mitigation strategy will be discontinued upon the return from spring break.
  • The reason we have maintained this is primarily that HSD is not currently following the NJDOH guidance to keep physical distancing in our schools; as a result, we kept the daily screening as a mitigation measure to help reduce the likelihood that a student or staff member will attend school with COVID-like symptoms.

COVID Testing

  • COVID Testing remains free of charge regardless of insurance status for HSD students and staff at our weekly testing clinics.
  • We recommend that students and staff complete the testing registration process so that there are no barriers to testing when/if the need arises.
  • Students and staff must be fully registered a minimum of 48 hours before testing.
  • Click here for testing registration and here for testing dates/times.

Report COVID+ Cases

  • Click here to report positive cases of COVID-19 for students/staff.

COVID+ Community Notifications

  • We will no longer be sending COVID+ notices for each reported positive case; however, HSD will continue to maintain the HSD COVID+ Dashboard, which is not updated at least weekly.
