Close contact is defined by CDC as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.
If your student is showing any symptoms, please do not have them come to campus or join in-person activities. It is critical that we each continue to take measures to protect ourselves and our community against COVID-19, including following the CDC guidelines:
In addition to evening cleaning, we will have janitorial services midday Tuesday through Friday to clean common areas per the procedure below:
Prior to beginning hybrid learning, we will be providing COVID testing and asking all students, faculty, and staff to participate. We are partnering with NW Mobile Testing in this initiative.
After returning to campus we will continue partnering with NW Mobile Testing to provide surveillance testing. Students and staff members will be tested once per month. Testing will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays, with 25% of our population tested each week.
Additionally, Edison will provide have self-administered onsite tests available for individuals who develop symptoms over the course of the school day (This is in alignment with the requirements set forth by ODE).
Per the CDC, you should quarantine for ten (10) days with no symptoms or for seven (7) days with a negative test when one of the following applies to you:
- Traveling out of state
- Come in close contact with someone who has a confirmed or presumed case of COVID-19.
We are monitoring CDC guidelines for changes and updates, please contact the school with specific questions.
All students should review and sign the Return to Campus Commitment.
