Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 should:

  • Stay at home for 5 days from the day you were tested, even if you don’t have symptoms or feel sick.

  • You can leave your house after 5 days if your symptoms have improved (fever-free without medicine for at least 24 hours).

  • It is recommended you wear a mask around others for the 5 days after your home isolation.

Anyone exposed to COVID-19:

  • People 18 and older who have had their booster dose or are recently vaccinated do not need to quarantine at home.

    • These individuals can continue to go to work and participate in activities; however, the CDC recommends wearing a mask for the 10 days after exposure.

  • People younger than 18 who are up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations don't need to quarantine at home. However, the CDC recommends they wear a mask for the 10 days after their exposure.

  • People of all ages who are not vaccinated should quarantine at home for 5 days from the day they were exposed. They can end quarantine after 5 days as long as they don’t have any symptoms.

-OR-

  • The CDC says students may attend school so long as they wear a mask at school for the 10 days after their exposure.

At this time, we ask everyone to be extra vigilant by following recommendations to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in the school and community. Taking extra precautions will help in efforts to keep students and staff safe and avoid a “Test to Stay” event.

You can monitor COVID-19 case counts at all schools in the District by going to our dashboard, which will continue to be updated daily. The COVID-19 data dashboard can be found at covid19.jordandistrict.org/dashboard/Opens in a new window.
