Documentation for Return -parent
At least 5 days after the start of symptoms and parent's note that symptoms are significantly improving and there has been no fever in the past 24 hours without using fever reducing medication.
Recent Update to DHEC exclusion for Covid:
Close contacts in the home can attend school as long as they are not experiencing symptoms. Masking is strongly encouraged, but not mandatory. Testing is recommended 5 days after the positive individual's isolation ends.
We do accept at-home-tests/over-the-counter tests. The parent should complete the Attestation Form.
