Close Contact Notice

September 14, 2021

Dear Families and Staff,

The District learned today that a person in your school, department, or building has tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. This individual is currently in isolation. Due to privacy laws, information regarding this individual’s identity cannot be released. Please respect this individual’s privacy during this difficult time.

Upon learning the news, we contacted the local health department and they will be determining who was a “close contact” with this individual. “Close contact” is defined as being closer than 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer with this individual (with or without a mask), within 48 hours prior to that person feeling sick or testing positive.

Our District health staff are assisting the local health department with this process of identifying close contacts. If you do not hear from our local health department or from our District Nursing and Wellness Office, you are not considered a “close contact” and there is nothing more for you to do at this time. This is a courtesy notice and we hope it will remind you to stay safe by maintaining physical distance from others, wear a face covering, and check yourself daily for symptoms.

It is a public health order of this County and State that anyone who is having COVID-19 symptoms to not come to work and please seek out a COVID 19 test at a county facility or through your own doctor. It is very important staff or students with symptoms not come onto school campuses.

Sincerely yours,

Susan Barndollar, RN, MN, FNP

Executive Director: Nursing and Wellness
