We received very good news today from the Utah Department of Health!
In the future, if a student is exposed at school, and was wearing a mask, and needs to quarantine, the student may be tested on day 7 of the quarantine and if their test is negative they may return to school! This has the potential to cut down quarantine times by half! This change was made after the health department looked at a lot of data that shows that by day 7 a great percentage of those who eventually get COVID from an exposure have the virus and it will show on a test. So, conversely, if a test is given on day 7 and is negative the person is not a carrier.
Have a wonderful fall break!
