Contact Tracing and Reporting

  • District staff will not try to determine who is to be excluded from school or work based on contact without guidance and direction from the Monroe County Department of Health.

    • When possible, staff and students will be notified by the District of possible contact with a symptomatic or COVID-19 positive staff member or student. Confidentiality will be maintained as required by federal and State laws and regulations. The Monroe County Department of Health is responsible for community contact tracing, including staff and students.
      • The CDC defines close contact as being within six feet for at least 15 minutes.
    • If a staff member, student, or visitor test positive for COVID-19, the District will immediately notify State and local health departments and cooperate with contact tracing efforts. The Monroe County Department of Health will be notified of all individuals who entered the site dating back 48 hours before the person tested positive or started experiencing symptoms, whichever is earlier.
      • The District will assist the Monroe County Department of Health in all tracing efforts by supplying student and staff attendance and location information, student schedules, and visitor logs.
      • The Student Health Services Department, the Environmental Health and Safety Department, and/or the office of the Chief Operating Officer will be responsible for notifying the Monroe County Department of Health if an employee reports that they have tested positive.
