Quarantine & Isolation Guidance

Based on available information at this time, mask wearing is optional in all DCSD buildings, facilities, buses, and school transportation. Students and staff are strongly encouraged to wear masks.

Individuals who present with symptoms, test positive, or are exposed to someone with COVID-19 should continue to follow all district-wide protocols and consistently and correctly wear masks to protect others as well as themselves.

  • Quarantine is a strategy used to prevent transmission of COVID-19 by keeping people who have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 apart from others.

  • Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected.
