COVID-19 School Plan & Policies
- Effective 2/10/2022, we have updated all our vaccination, mask, cleaning, disinfection, sanitize, response, schedule, and many more policies
- Please read the complete Shenker Academy Mitigation Plan 2022 by clicking on the link above.DEFINITIONS:QuarantineQuarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 5-7 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.
Contact with infectious agents (bacteria or viruses) in a manner that promotes transmission and increases the likelihood of disease.
What to do
- Stay home for 10-14 days after your last contact with a person who has COVID-19.
- Watch for fever (100.4◦F), cough, shortness of breath, or other symptomsof COVID-19.
- If possible, stay away from people you live with, especially people who are at higher riskfor getting very sick from COVID-19.
- We recommend quarantine for 10 days without testing
- Or a shorter option: 7 days after receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later)
In areas using options to reduce quarantine times, people who are asymptomatic can use a negative test result collected on day five (5) after exposure to exit quarantine on day seven (7), with additional self-monitoring. The day of exposure is considered day zero (0).
Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected.
People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others. At home, anyone sick or infected should separate from others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area, and use a separate bathroom (if available).
To calculate your 10 full day isolation period, day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed.
If you test positive for COVID-19 and never develop symptoms, day 0 is the day of your positive viral test (based on the date you were tested) and day 1 is the first full day after your positive test. If you develop symptoms after testing positive, your 10-day isolation period must start over. Day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed.
What to do
- Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign(including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
- Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
- Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
- Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets.
- Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
- Wear a maskwhen around other people if able.
