Health Department Guidance Update: Covid 19

Today, our district received a change in quarantine period from the health department. Given the increase in positive cases and the problems the variants are causing (variant B.1.1.7 is now the prominent virus in Michigan)- Wayne County Health Dept has issued a change in guidance.

A close contact will now be required to quarantine for 14 days from the last date of contact from the positive person.

A quarantine can be avoided: 

  • if a person is fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks past their final dose of vaccine) OR
  •  if they have a documented, PCR positive Covid test in the last 5 months.

A 10-day sick isolation still remains for those who have tested positive for covid.

Thank you for your continued support and communication to keep our school community healthy!
