COVID-19 Guidance Charts

Excerpt from NYC DOE

We recognize that families need clear information to help them make decisions related to COVID-19. You can also refer to the following flowcharts that outline the steps you should take if your child feels sick, was exposed to COVID-19, or tested positive for COVID-19.

COVID-19 Guidance for Families (Grades K–12)

Health and Safety in Our Schools

Excerpt from NYC DOE on February 16, 2022

Shortened Isolation and Quarantine Periods

We know how important it is to keep our schools and classrooms open for learning, and we have done everything we can to make sure our classrooms are equipped to be safe learning environments. In light of recent changes by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and New York State Department of Health, the Department of Education will implement shortened isolation and quarantine periods starting January 31.

 

Isolation Period
The isolation period for K-12 students with a positive COVID-19 test result has been shortened to five days from ten days. This means if your child tests positive for COVID-19 and is in kindergarten or higher, your child can return to school on Day 6.

  • Children can return from isolation on Day 6 if they have no symptoms or their symptoms are improving, and they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.
  • Students returning from isolation on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask such as a KN95, KF94, or a cloth mask over a disposable surgical mask on Days 6–10.

Please be aware that any child (in any grade) who has completed their isolation period is NOT required to show proof of a negative test result before being allowed to return to school or work.

 

Shortened Quarantine for COVID-19 Exposure
The quarantine period for students exposed to COVID-19 has been shortened. Students in K-12 will continue to use home test kits to stay in school after an in-school exposure.

  • If your child is NOT fully vaccinated and was exposed to COVID-19 outside of a school setting, your child must quarantine for at least 5 days; this is reduced from 10 days.
  • If your child is fully vaccinated and was exposed outside of school, your child can continue to attend school so long as they do not have any symptoms.
  • All students are required to wear masks while on school grounds, and students who were exposed must wear a well-fitting mask such as a KN95, KF94, or a cloth mask over a disposable surgical mask on Days 6–10.
