Frequently Asked Questions
If my son/daughter is not feeling well, what should I do?
Keep your child at home, contact your school building for an excused absence and if determined, follow steps 1 or 2 below:
- If you have confirmed or suspected COVID-19 (or flu like symptoms), you can stop your home isolation when:
- You’ve been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication
- Your symptoms have gotten better
- At least 10 days have gone by since your symptoms first appeared
- If you tested positive for COVID-19, but have not had any symptoms, you can stop your home isolation when:
- At least 10 days have gone by since the date of your first positive COVID-19 test
What’s the difference between isolation and quarantine?
- Isolation is what you do if you have COVID-19 symptoms, are awaiting test results, or have tested positive. Isolation means you stay home and away from others (including household members) for the recommended period of time to avoid spreading illness.
- Quarantine is what you do if you have been exposed to COVID-19. Quarantine means you stay home and away from others for the recommended period of time in case you are infected and are contagious. Quarantine becomes isolation if you later test positive for COVID-19 or develop symptoms.
How long is quarantine? Current quarantine recommendations are to stay in quarantine for 14 days after your last contact. This is the safest option. Monitor your symptoms during this time, and if you have any COVID-19 symptoms during the 14 days, get tested.
If this is not possible, stay in quarantine for 10 days after your last contact, without additional testing. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms during the 10 days, stay in quarantine the full 14 days and get tested. Keep watching for symptoms until day 14.
Under special circumstances it may be possible to end quarantine after 7 full days beginning after your last contact if you have been without symptoms and after receiving a negative result from a test (get tested no sooner than 48 hours before ending quarantine.) This will depend on availability of testing resources. Keep watching for symptoms until day 14. This is the method that Colville School District is using. Remember that “last contact” begins AFTER isolation ends for a household contact.
