The following guidelines will be used for decision-making regarding COVID cases in the Visitation community. As always, guidelines are subject to change at any time based on updated CDC and St. Louis County Department of Public Health guidelines.
People who test positive for the virus should still isolate at home for at least 5 days and wear masks indoors in places where community transmission levels are high. Day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when you tested positive. Day 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started. Faculty, staff and students may return to school when fever free for 24 hours without medication and after 5 days at home with symptom improvement.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19, quarantine at home is no longer required regardless of vaccination status. It is recommended to wear a mask for 10 days and test 5 days after exposure. Testing is no longer required if there are no symptoms.
