This Week's Total New Positive Cases
A Message from our Director of Health Services
Dear Woodstock Academy Community,
The number of COVID-19 cases above is reflective of the week 06/11/22-6/17/22. The above-affected people were instructed to remain home in self-isolation for a minimum of 5 days and were provided with additional instructions to follow prior to returning. The Woodstock Academy is now following the updated isolation/quarantine guidance that was released by DPH/CSDE as of 1/1/22.
We continue to ask for your diligence in monitoring for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and adhering to our school policies during this continued pandemic. Please do not send your child to school with any of the symptoms listed below. It is still important to report any potential signs or symptoms of COVID-19 to our health office and to continue to get tested if needed regardless of your vaccination status. We also ask that you notify our health office if you have been identified as a close contact so the appropriate return to school protocol can be reviewed based on your vaccination status.
Below is the list of COVID-19 symptoms for which everyone should monitor in themselves and family members:
- Fever (100.4 Fahrenheit or higher)
- Chills or shaking chills
- Uncontrolled new cough (not due to other known cause, such as chronic cough)
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- New loss of taste or smell
Additional symptoms may include:
- Sore throat
- Muscle aches
- Nasal congestion/runny nose
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
For additional information on COVID-19 symptoms, please see this document from the CDC.
Staff and students exhibiting any of the above symptoms, or feeling ill, should remain home and call their medical provider to report their symptoms and ask about testing prior to seeking in-person care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. The Woodstock Academy is also now accepting at home rapid tests. Verification of test results should be emailed to email@example.com.
Vaccination for COVID-19 continues to be the most effective mitigation strategy in preventing severe illness and hospitalization. Booster doses are readily available for those that are eligible. Information on booster eligibility can be found here.
We thank you for partnering with us to keep our students and staff safe.
