Prevention, Detection & Monitoring

Please continue to monitor symptoms daily and do not come to work or school if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. 

Information on testing and the vaccine is available at: KCS school-based clinics and our testing partners can help support students and staff who wish to be tested.

Positive Case Procedure

If a student or staff member does test positive, regardless of masking or vaccination, they should stay home for at least five days and isolate from others. Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or positive test if asymptomatic. They may return on day 6 if symptoms are improving and they’ve been fever free for 24 hours without use of fever reducing medication. It is then recommended to mask for days 6-10. Household exposures do not need to stay out unless they are experiencing symptoms.
