Contact Tracing & Quarantines
Cameron Schools will adhere to the following guidelines from the Department of Public Instruction:
Schools are not required to conduct contact tracing as a standard practice but should continue to work with their Local and Tribal Health Departments (LTHD) in the case of outbreaks. Quarantine periods may be omitted. Asymptomatic (exposed) children and staff, regardless of where the exposure occurred, no longer need to quarantine. Students or staff who self- identify as close contacts may continue to attend school/work if they remain asymptomatic.
If the symptomatic student or staff cannot be tested immediately, they should be sent home and allowed to return to school/work as long as they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and their symptoms are resolving, or if a medical professional makes an alternative diagnosis. A negative test is recommended but not required for return to school/work.
Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for at least 5 days. If they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving and they have been fever-free for 24 hours, they may return to school/work after Day 5 (on Day 6 with Day 0 being day of test or onset of symptoms). CDC stipulates this return may occur on Day 6 provided: • the individual is able to mask, they must do so through Day 10. • If the individual is unable to mask, it is recommended they have a negative test on Day 5 or later to return to school/work prior to day 11.
- District buses will be sanitized as needed.

- Routine daily cleanings will continue throughout all school buildings.
