Just to share information from the Carbon County Public Health (CCPH) on procedural issues: If we receive information that a student/staff member has had direct contact or has tested positive for Covid, we are to call Amanda Brown (CCPH) immediately and she will investigate and confirm – or not – the information and let us know about any quarantine orders or other guidance. If they (CCPH) become aware of a positive test of one of our students or staff, or direct contact situations, they will notify us ASAP and give us written dates of any quarantine orders. We will be meeting weekly with CCPH (at a minimum).
We will also receive guidance about sharing information and who to share it with – and we can be honest about the situation when asked questions (re: that there are presently students and/or staff under quarantine). The key people to direct questions to are the nurses and the building principals. We are not free to identify the student or staff member. CCPH also indicated that they will identify risk level – i.e. low risk if it is due to direct contact – but higher risk if the individual themselves are a confirmed case. Just wanted to share current guidance from the CCPH. Thanks for making the start of school great last week!
