Please read the attached letter regarding updated Covid-19 quarantine protocols for students identified as school-related close contacts. This letter is the result of a joint agreement between the Putnam County Health Department and Putnam County Schools.
This guidance will allow students identified as school-related close contacts to now have the option to keep attending school during their "quarantine" period provided they properly wear face covering.
These changes in quarantine protocol DO NOT apply to non-school related incidents of Covid-19 (household, general public, etc.) as students identified as close contacts in those circumstances will be instructed to quarantine at home as per usual. Nor does it apply to participation in extracurricular activities, as you will read in the letter. I hope these changes do not cause any confusion and we will do our utmost to handle each situation properly and communicate as effectively with you as possible.
