At HFK, we are following the Quarantine and Isolation guidance from the CDC. Click this link for additional information: CDC FAQ. In addition, this Quarantine and Isolation Calculator may be helpful.

Quarantine

Students, teachers, and staff who come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 need to quarantine for at least 5 days after their last close contact if they are in any one of the following groups:

  • Ages 18 or older and completed the primary series of recommended vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible.
  • They received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
  • They are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.

After quarantine, watch for symptoms until 10 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. If you develop symptoms, immediately isolate and get tested. Continue to stay home until you know the results. Wear a well-fitting mask around others. Take precautions until day 10. Wear a well-fitting mask for 10 full days any time you are around others inside your home or in public.

Students, teachers, and staff who come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 do not need to quarantine if they are in any one of the following groups:

  • Ages 18 or older and have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people.
  • Ages 5-17 years and completed the primary series of COVID-19 vac cines.
  • Had confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days.

You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms. Even if you don’t develop symptoms, get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. Watch for symptoms until 10 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. If you develop symptoms, isolate immediately and get tested. Continue to stay home until you know the results. Wear a well-fitting mask around others.

Isolation

All people with COVID-19 (with or without symptoms) regardless of vaccination status need to isolate for at least 5 days.

For students, teachers, and staff who test positive for COVID-19 and never develop symptoms:

  • Isolate for at least 5 days. Day 0 is the day of the positive COVID-19 test and day 1 is the first full day after the specimen was collected for the positive test.
  • If they continue to have no symptoms, they can end isolation after at least 5 days, but must continue to wear a well-fitting mask for an additional 5 days OR test negative with an antigen or at-home test any day after day 5 before returning without a mask. Testing beyond day 10 is not necessary.
  • If they develop symptoms after testing positive, the 5-day isolation period should start over. Day 0 is the first day of symptoms.

For students teachers and staff who have COVID-19 and have or had symptoms:

  • They can end isolation after 5 days if they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms have improved.
  • If the person meets these criteria, they can return to school after 5 days of isolation, but must continue to wear a well-fitting mask for an additional 5 days.
  • If they continue to have a fever or other symptoms have not improved after 5 days of isolation, they should wait to end isolation until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms have improved.
