  • STUDENT QUARANTINES


    POSITIVE CASES

    • Positive cases (symptomatic): Must isolate from symptom onset, counting the first day of symptoms as day 0, and may not return until day 6 or later when they are fever-free for 24 hours without medication and symptoms improve.
    • Positive cases (asymptomatic): Must isolate for 5 days from the date of the positive test (date of test counts as day 0) and may return to school on day 6, if they remain asymptomatic and wear a mask through day 10. 

    Note: CGCSC will accept positive at-home tests. You may email your school’s clinic staff or submit it through the online form at this link.

    CLOSE CONTACTS
    (When masking is optional in schools)

    • The Indiana Department of Health defines a close contact as an individual within six (6) feet or less for at least 15 minutes.
    • Close contacts identified inside or outside the classroom:
      • If unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, the individual must quarantine at home for 5 days (from the date of exposure) and not participate in extracurricular activities. If asymptomatic, the individual may return on day 6 as long as masking continues through day 10. 
      • If fully vaccinated (including booster if allowed), the individual may continue to attend school, including extracurricular activities, if they wear a mask through day 10. (An exception to continuous masking is allowed only during strenuous physical activity or active performance in an extracurricular activity.)
      • If the individual identified as a close contact has proof of a positive test in the previous 90 days, they would not be required to quarantine. They must wear a mask for 10 days from the date of exposure to the positive individual.

     CLOSE CONTACTS 
    (When masking is required in schools)

    • The Indiana Department of Health defines a close contact as an individual within three (3) feet or less for at least 15 minutes.
    • Close contacts identified inside the classroom:
      • As long as the close contact continues to be asymptomatic, may remain in school and continue to wear a mask properly at all times for 10 days, test on Day 5 if possible
      • If symptoms develop, get a test and stay home and if positive, follow isolation guidance. If test is negative, return to school when symptoms have resolved.
    • Close contacts identified outside the classroom:
      • If unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, the individual must quarantine at home for 5 days (from the date of exposure) and not participate in extracurricular activities. If asymptomatic, the individual may return on day 6 as long as masking continues through day 10. 
      • If fully vaccinated (including booster if allowed), the individual may continue to attend school, including extracurricular activities, if they wear a mask through day 10. (An exception to continuous masking is allowed only during strenuous physical activity or active performance in an extracurricular activity.)
      • If the individual identified as a close contact has proof of a positive test in the previous 90 days, they would not be required to quarantine. They must wear a mask for 10 days from the date of exposure to the positive individual.
