Re-Entry Protocols for Confirmed or Suspected Cases of COVID-19

INDIVIDUALS CONFIRMED OR SUSPECTED WITH COVID-19

Any individuals who themselves either: (a) are lab-confirmed to have COVID-19; or (b) experience the symptoms of COVID-19 (see COVID-19 Symptoms) must stay at home throughout the infection period, and cannot return to campus until the school nurse screens the individual to determine any of the below conditions for campus re-entry have been met:

  1. In the case of an individual who was diagnosed with COVID-19, the individual may return to school when all three of the following criteria are met:
    • At least three days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);
    • the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and
    • at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
       
  2. In the case of an individual who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and who is not evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19, such individual is assumed to have COVID-19, and the individual may not return to the campus until the individual has completed the same three-step set of criteria listed above.
     
  3. If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must either (a) obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return based on an alternative diagnosis or (b) obtain an acute infection test at an approved testing location (https://tdem.texas.gov/covid-19/) that comes back negative for COVID-19.
