According to an update from the Edgerton School District, they have adjusted their contact tracing protocols. Contract tracing is no longer expected or required for every COVID-19 case, but will instead be used when deemed appropriate in high-risk settings where preventing or controlling outbreaks is necessary. Quarantining of students who may have been a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person is no longer required, as long as the close-contact is asymptomatic. At the elementary school level, if an individual within a classroom tests positive for COVID-19, parents with a student in the same classroom will receive an e-mail stating their child may have been in contact with a positive case. At the middle and high school level, if an individual tests positive for COVID-19, contact tracing would involve interviewing the positive individual and reviewing seating charts within each classroom the positive individual would have been in. Parents of individuals identified as a possible close contact will receive an email indicating their child may have been in close contact with a positive case. Quarantine and isolation protocols will continue if your child is positive with COVID-19, has a family member that is positive, or is symptomatic.
