Below are the details of the current quarantine rules based on the NC Strong School Toolkit. Click here to view the toolkit.
Quarantine is required for an individual who has been in close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes cumulatively over a 24-hour period) of someone who is determined positive with COVID-19 either through testing or symptom consistent diagnosis, with the following three exceptions:
- Individuals who are fully vaccinated and do not have symptoms do NOT need to quarantine after a close contact.
- People who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered and do not have symptoms do NOT have to quarantine.
- Students who are not fully vaccinated after a close contact in a classroom or other school setting if masks were being worn appropriately and consistently by both the person with COVID-19 and the potentially exposed person do NOT need to quarantine.
CDC continues to recommend quarantine for 14 days after last exposure. However, as of December 2, 2020, the CDC has offered options to reduce the duration of quarantine in either of the following two scenarios:
- 10 days of quarantine have been completed and no symptoms have been reported during daily at home monitoring;
- 7 days of quarantine have been completed, no symptoms have been reported during daily at home monitoring, and the individual has received results of a negative antigen or PCR/molecular test on a test taken no earlier than day 5 of quarantine.
- If quarantine is discontinued before day 14, the individual should continue to monitor symptoms and strictly adhere to all non- pharmaceutical interventions (e.g. wear a mask, practice physical distancing) through 14 days after the date of last exposure.
If a student is symptomatic, we will be quarantining them with or without a positive test. These are the symptoms we will be excluding for. If a student presents with any of these, they will need a negative test to return to school.
- Fever (temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher)
- Sore throat
- Cough (for people with chronic cough due to allergies or asthma, a change in their cough from baseline)
- Difficulty breathing (for people with asthma, a change from their baseline breathing)
- New loss of taste or smell
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
