  •     A negative PCR COVID test (not a “rapid antigen” test)
  •     A doctor's note listing an alternate diagnosis (AND it has been at least 24 hours since you had a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine AND you have felt well for 24 hours).
  •     10-day quarantine without symptoms.


Students may return if:


It has been at least 10 days since they first had symptoms (AND it has been at least 24 hours since they had a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine AND symptoms are improving, including cough and shortness of breath).




Symptoms Not Associated with COVID-19

If you are experiencing symptoms not on the NCDHHS COVID-19 symptom list (like ear ache, stomach ache), you may return to school after you have gone at least 24 hours without a fever or the use of fever-reducing medicine.
