“Any student or staff member exposed to a COVID-19 case in a standard classroom setting or in other enclosed common school settings, such as a breakroom or office, for 60 minutes or more will be instructed to quarantine in their own room with their own bathroom for 14 days from the last day of exposure to the COVID-19 case.”
This change was made based on their analysis of data which reinforces the information presented above concerning the safety of in-person/in-school instruction.
Our mitigation strategies along with our new testing procedures in conjunction with these updated guidelines should further minimize the potential for an individual to be quarantined.
However, ECDOH’s 14-day quarantine rule for an individual coming into contact with an infected (positive) case closer than 6 feet for 10 continuous minutes or morestill remains in effect.
The Lancaster Central School District's purpose is to provide our students with a comprehensive educational program that will allow them to develop fully the necessary academic and social skills to become responsible and productive members of a democratic society.
