RCS Nursing department is recommending families follow the CDC guidelines for quarantine. CDC is recommending quarantine for 5 days beginning on the first day of symptoms, unless otherwise directed by a doctor. After the 5 day quarantine, the CDC recommends wearing a mask for five days.
RCS follows the attached fever policy. Students can return to school when they have been fever-free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications. If a student doesn't have a fever and returns to school during the first five day quarantine, it is recommended they wear a mask during that time in addition to the five days after quarantine. While it is not required to a wear a mask, as with all illnesses, we would like to reduce the spread of COVID and thus recommend it if positive or in the quarantine period.
