Our School Nurse Coordinator has updated our toolkit for reopening for our parents/guardians with the most recent guidance.



**The close contact definition has been updated to say:**

Close contact: Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person (laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness) for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes) from 48 hours prior to symptom onset (or specimen collection for an asymptomatic infected person) of the infected person.
• The close contact definition excludes students who were within 3 to 6 feet of an infected student (laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness) if both the infected student and the exposed student(s) wore masks during the exposure time. This exception does not apply to teachers, staff, or other adults in the indoor classroom setting
