COVID-19 Policies & Return to SchoolThe Woodstock Academy continues to follow the recommendations of the CDC for isolation/quarantine guidelines for COVID. The CDC recommends anyone testing positive for COVID-19 remain home for at least five days, until they are fever free for at least 24 hours without any fever reducing medication, and until they have a significant improvement in their symptoms. Upon return, any student /staff recovering from COVID is still encouraged to wear a face mask through Day 10 anytime they are around others.Anyone that is considered a close contact of a positive case, but that has no symptoms may continue to work and attend school as long as they have no fever and remain asymptomatic. All close contacts are encouraged to wear a face mask for 10 days from the date of their last contact with the positive case. Close contacts are asked to remain home if they become symptomatic and encouraged to COVID test. All COVID-19-related questions and return-to-school decisions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.There will be a number of respiratory viruses including COVID-19, influenza, and RSV that will be circulating through the Fall and Winter.
