PROCEDURES FOR STUDENTS/PERSONNEL - COVID-19
(Approved by Dr. Gary Voccio, Dade County Health Department)
1. Definition of EXPOSED: This means you were closer than 6 feet to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and you didn't have a mask on and you were closer than 6 feet for more than 15 minutes.
2. IF you were EXPOSED to someone COVID-19 POSITIVE, then you must quarantine for 14 DAYS and should be tested on the 10th day.
3. IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19, you should ISOLATE at home for a minimum of 10 days and 24 hours without symptoms and fever free without fever reducing medications. This means you may be isolated longer than 10 days.
4. Dr. Voccio reminds us to be vigilant about hand washing with soap and water, social distancing and wearing a mask/face shield.
WHO MAKES THE DETERMINATION REGARDING LEAVE? Employees should contact their principal or direct supervisor when issues arise. The supervisor/principal, nurse, HR rep and superintendent will work collaboratively with DPH to advise.
