How does Woodridge 68 notify families and staff about COVID-19 cases?
- Positive Case: a student or staff member has been tested and received a report confirming they have the virus. These individuals will be isolated for a minimum of 10 days and upon meeting the criteria set on our Return to School Protocols page, can return to school.
- Exposure/Close Contact: individuals who have not tested positive but have been identified as being in close contact with someone (inside or outside of school) who has. These individuals are identified through contact tracing, by self-reported interaction, or through self-certification and screening process. They are instructed to quarantine for 14 days after the last day of contact with the person who is COVID-19 positive to monitor for symptoms.
- Anyone who has been in close contact with a positive case will be notified by the District. Staff and families who do not receive a phone call from the District can assume there was no close contact with the COVID-positive individual.
- We will also send a standard “low risk” letter for all families in a classroom where we have a positive COVID case.
The District does not send out a separate communication to the full school/District community each time a case is confirmed. Instead, this dashboard serves as a general information source for the entire Woodridge 68 community.
