How to quarantine | Colorado COVID-19 Updates 1

Tonight, the following message went out to about 30 families of students at RHS in Group A cohort. If you did NOT receive this email, your child is not under the quarantine.

If you have questions about your child being in quarantine, please email Superintendent Leslie Arnold directly at leslie.arnold@weldre5j.org. Questions will not be answered on our FB page or on messenger.

****************************************

Dear Parents,
A student or staff member in GROUP A at Roosevelt High School has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Each case of COVID-19 is interviewed by our public health department. As part of this public health investigation:

The person diagnosed is being kept home from school until they are no longer infectious.

The person’s activities when they could have spread COVID-19 were assessed.

The people who were close contacts of the person with COVID-19 are instructed to stay home from school for 14 days after the exposure. This is called quarantine.

Because it is impossible to assess all interactions in a classroom and because of the length of time which classes spend together, all classroom members are considered close contacts. Your child was in the same class or group as the person diagnosed with COVID-19 last week, so your child now must follow quarantine instructions, per the Weld Health Department, and stay home from school until Tuesday, September 8th, 2020. If you have children in other classes, they can still go to school unless their sibling gets sick.

Your child can return to school and normal activities on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. During this time, your child should stay home and not go to other schools, activities, childcares, or other activities around other people. Instructions about how to quarantine are available here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/how-to-quarantine#

If your child develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19:

Follow these isolation instructions.

Have your child tested.

Continue to keep your child home from school and avoid other activities around other people.

Notify the school.

Seek medical care and testing for COVID-19, calling your doctor before you show up.

Public Health may recommend or you may choose to have your child tested for COVID-19 a week after they were around the person with COVID-19, even if your child does not have symptoms. A negative test result does not mean that your child will not develop symptoms or become sick after the test. A negative test result means that your child did not have COVID-19 detected at the time of testing. A negative test will not allow your child to come back to school or attend other activities sooner. Medical insurance may not cover the cost of testing for people without symptoms.

Under the Healthy Families and Workplaces Act (“HFWA”), an employer must provide paid leave to an employee under certain conditions, including taking care of someone else due to COVID-19 precautions, including a child whose school, place of care, or child care is closed or unavailable.
