Stay Home When Sick

    they will be sent home or to a healthcare facility depending on symptom severity. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19 should follow the DOH Isolation and Exposure Guidance for K-12 Schools.
COVID-19 Testing
  • People with symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested as soon as possible. If exposed to someone with COVID-19, get tested at least five full days after your last exposure, even if no symptoms develop. To find a COVID-19 testing location near you, use the CDC testing locator. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, should follow the DOH Isolation and Exposure Guidance for K-12 schools.
