Covide Exposure Protocol
COVID-19 Diagnosis/Exposure Response Protocols
BACH has implemented the following response protocols to address incidents of COVID-19 confirmed diagnosis or exposure
Confirmed Diagnosis: A student or teacher( including parents that are teaching or assisting at BACH) has a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 from a certified testing location or by a treating physician. Individuals with a confirmed diagnosis will be placed on a mandatory 10-day quarantine (per CDC guidelines)
· Report of a student or teacher having a confirmed diagnosis should be made to Brooke Dorman, Katie Peterson or Amy Asher at [email protected]
· 10-day isolation (at home)
· Exposure notifications will be made to BACH members identified to have been exposed through contact tracing assessment
· Return to BACH will require the student or teacher to not have had symptoms for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication
· Member of Household Confirmed Diagnosis
· Report of a student/teacher’s member of a household having a confirmed diagnosis should be made to Brooke Dorman, Katie Peterson or Amy Asher at [email protected]
· 14-day at-home quarantine that begins at the end of the infected household member’s isolation period. A negative COVID test (PCR or longer test only) acceptable after day 9 (you may test as early as day 8 and receive the results by day 9)
Primary exposure: A primary exposure would include proximity (within 6 ft.) to a person with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 for a period of more than 15 min.
- 14-day quarantine(at home)
- A negative COVID test (PCR or longer test only) acceptable after day 9 (you may test as early as day 8 and receive results by day 9)
Additional information—BACH permitted the use of the rapid Covid test in the fall, but recent reports have indicated that the rapid test is quite unreliable and misses as much at 25% of positive cases. It has also been know to give false positives causing unnecessary quarantine.
If an individual has had COVID19 within the previous 3 months and has fully recovered, they do not have to quarantine if exposed.
• If a high school teacher needs to miss class due to COVID exposure and will be teaching from home, students in that class will have the option of logging into Zoom at home OR going into the classroom where the teacher will be teleconferenced in via a projector or TV. If this happens parents will be asked to take turns to sit in the class as a class monitor.
• Zoom classes will not be recorded
• If an elementary/middle school teacher cancels a class, please pick up your student for that class period
• Middle school students with classes that are out of sync may stay in the lobby for the 30 minute break. They need to bring something to keep them busy.
