Quarantine Protocols for 2021-2022


If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, they must isolate:

  • Stay home for 5 days.
  • If no symptoms or symptoms are resolving (much better) after 5 days, they can return to school (if they have a fever, they must stay home for 24 hours after the fever resolves)
  • If they still have a fever or symptoms haven’t improved after 5 days, they must stay in isolation until:
    • They have no fever for at least 24 hours (without using fever reducing medication) AND
    • Other symptoms have improved (for example, cough and shortness of breath have improved)
  • If they did not have symptoms when they tested positive but developed them AFTER, they must continue to isolate for 5 days after symptoms started and are improving as described above.
  • Mask wearing will be encouraged for 5 additional days when around others.

If a student or staff member is exposed to someone with COVID-19, it is recommended that they:

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days.

Englewood Schools will not be tracking COVID cases or sending exposure notifications to families this school year.
