  • Brookings School District adopts new quarantine guidelines
     
    Here is the information we received that indicates the South Dakota Department of Health has adopted these CDC modifications:

    NEW! Modification to CDC Quarantine Guidelines:
    • CDC recommends 14 days of quarantine from the day of last exposure to a person with COVID-19. The quarantine period is the length of the incubation period (or how long it may take a person to become ill with COVID-19) for COVID-19.
    • Based on evolving knowledge of COVID-19, CDC was able to provide alternatives that use additional information, specifically a close contact’s development of symptoms and testing for COVID-19, to decrease the length of quarantine.
    • CDC has provided two alternatives that have been adopted by SD-DOH:
    o Release from quarantine after 7 days
     Assumes the person in quarantine:
    • Has remained asymptomatic (has no symptoms)
    • Has a negative molecular or rapid antigen test that was collected on Day 5 or later, after their last contact with a person with COVID-19 (i.e., Day 5 of their quarantine or later)
    • Continues to monitor their symptoms for the remainder of the 14 day period and will stay at home and seek testing if they become sick
    o Release from quarantine after 10 days
     Assumes the person in quarantine:
    • Has remained asymptomatic (has no symptoms)
    • Is not tested on Day 5 or later of quarantine
    • Continues to monitor their symptoms for the remainder of the 14 day period and will stay at home and seek testing if they become sick
