The health and safety of our students, staff, and families remains a priority for all of us at the Kimberly Area School District.

Quarantining 

Quarantining Scenarios 

Scenario 1: Close contact with someone who has COVID-19—will not have further close contact
I had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 and will not have further contact or interactions with the person while they are sick (e.g., co-worker, neighbor, or friend).

Your last day of quarantine is 10 days from the date you had close contact.

Date of last close contact with a person who has COVID-19 + 10 days= end of quarantine

Scenario 2: Close contact with someone who has COVID-19—live with the person but can avoid further close contact
I live with someone who has COVID-19 (e.g., roommate, partner, family member), and that person has isolated and we are completely* separated. I have had no close contact with the person since they isolated.

Your last day of quarantine is 10 days from when the person with COVID-19 began home isolation.

Date person with COVID-19 began home isolation + 10 days = end of quarantine

*Complete separation:  means no contact, no time together in the same room, no sharing of any spaces such as the same bedroom and/or bathroom

Scenario 3. Under quarantine and had additional close contact with someone who has COVID-19
I live with someone who has COVID-19 and started my 10-day quarantine period because we had close contact. What if I ended up having close contact with the person who is sick during my quarantine? What if another household member gets sick with COVID-19? Do I need to restart my quarantine?

Yes. You will have to restart your quarantine from the last day you had close contact with anyone in your house who has COVID-19. Any time a new household member gets sick with COVID-19 and you had close contact, you will need to restart your quarantine.

Date of additional close contact with a person who has COVID-19 + 10 days = end of quarantine

Scenario 4: Live with someone who has COVID-19 and cannot avoid continued close contact
I live in a household where I cannot avoid close contact with the person who has COVID-19. I am providing direct care to the person who is sick, don’t have the ability to *completely separate from the person who is sick, or live in close quarters where I am unable to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.

You should avoid contact with others outside the home while the person is sick, and quarantine for 10 days after the person who has COVID-19 meets the criteria to end home isolation.

Date the person with COVID-19 ends home isolation + 10 days = end of quarantine
