New Guidelines for Students Identified as Close Contacts to Positive COVID-19 Cases

 

After receiving direct communications from the Governor’s office and from the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), effective Monday, September 14, 2020, Floyd County Schools (FCS) will follow existing DPH administrative quarantine orders pertaining to students identified as having possible exposure to or close contacts with a student or employee who is known to have tested positive for COVID-19.  FCS encourages all students and parents to follow DPH’s guidelines or directives.  

Parents/guardians should notify their school principal if they or their child develops COVID-19 symptoms and/or receives a positive COVID-19 test result.  If your child develops COVID-19 symptoms or positive COVID-19 test results while under a quarantine period, please also notify FCS.  Sharing such health information with FCS will be kept strictly confidential. Symptoms of COVID-19 include, but are not limited to, fever of 100.4 or higher, chills, new or persistent cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, headache, new loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and/or stomach issues (diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting). 

If you have any general questions, please refer to the FCS Return to Learn Plan which can be found HERE or on the homepage of the district website- www.FloydBOE.net.
