Updated Isolation and Quarantine Requirements from WCPSS

As of Dec. 31, 2021, per revised guidance from CDC and the StrongSchoolsNC Toolkit, the following changes have been made to the district’s COVID-19 health guidance related to quarantine and isolation requirements. Note that there are no changes to district face covering guidance at this time. 

Staff and students who have symptoms, regardless of vaccination status should get tested and isolate from others while waiting for a result. (If testing is not possible, follow the guidance below as if you are positive.)

Isolation requirements
Staff and students who test positive, regardless of vaccination status, and: 

  • Do not have symptoms – should isolate yourself from others for 5 days.
  • Have symptoms – should isolate from others until fever-free and symptoms are improving. You should isolate yourself for at least 5 days since your symptoms began.

Quarantine requirements
Staff and students who are exposed to someone with COVID-19, and: 

  • Not vaccinated – stay away from others for 5 days, get tested on day 5 after exposure, and if you test negative, you may return to school or work.
  • Vaccinated and eligible for a booster, but not yet boosted – stay away from others for 5 days, get tested on day 5 after exposure, and if you test negative, you may return to school or work.
  • Vaccinated, and have either received a booster or are not yet eligible for a booster – you do not need to stay away from others.

Per the StrongSchoolsNC Toolkit guidance, individuals who are not fully vaccinated after close contact in a classroom or other school setting if masks were being worn appropriately and consistently by both the person with COVID-19 and the potentially exposed person do NOT need to quarantine.
