Dear Moreland Families,
I wanted to update you on the most recent guidance from the California Department of Public Health. Please note the following:
Students that test positive for COVID-19 must isolate at home for five days from the onset of symptoms or when the positive test was collected.
Students may return to school beginning on Day 6 of isolation if they feel well, have improving symptoms, and have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
Students should continue to wear a mask for a total of 10 days after testing positive for COVID-19. However, after ending isolation (no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and symptoms are improving), confirmed cases may remove their mask sooner than Day 10 with two sequential negative tests at least one day apart. If antigen test results are positive, the person may still be infectious, and should continue wearing a mask and wait at least one day before taking another test.
We will no longer require test results to return to school after day 5 of isolation; however, testing will be encouraged.
The Moreland SD’s CDPH Guidance Update and the Moreland SD’s COVID-19 General Notification Letter provide additional information regarding the management of COVID-19 in our Moreland Schools. We thank you for your continued support in helping to ensure a safe and supportive school environment for our students, families, and staff members.
