COVID 19 Reporting
Important: Mask update as of January 18, 2022
We strongly encourage every person to wear a mask while in Great Oaks schools and buildings. Masking has shown to reduce the spread of various viruses thus keeping our students and staff in school, face to face. Masking also allows us to continue to follow the ‘Mask to Stay’ protocols as outlined below.
Students and staff who are required to wear a mask as of January 18 due to close contact or COVID protocols must continue to do so during their designated masking period.
Masks are still required by federal guidelines on all school buses and in district vehicles.
Quarantine guidelines updated January 3:
The Ohio Department of Health has issued new quarantine guidelines which will affect those students and staff who have been exposed to COVID-19 at school. Called “Mask to Stay,” the guidelines say that direct contacts, regardless of vaccination or masking status, can stay in school if they do all of the following:
- Wear a mask for 10 days after their last date of exposure.
- Self-monitor, or parent-monitor, for symptoms of COVID-19.
- Isolate and get tested if they start to experience symptoms associated with COVID-19 (regardless of level of severity).
- Consistent with guidance for others quarantining in lower-risk environments, students and staff may discontinue these quarantine procedures after seven days — if they don’t develop symptoms and test negative between days 5-7.
This only applies to those who come into direct contact with a COVID-positive individual at school. Those who are direct contacts as a result of outside exposure, or who have symptoms or test positive must continue to follow the current quarantine guidelines. Check with the school nurse for current quarantine guidelines.
- Students under the new “Mask to Stay” protocols will be provided a separate lunch seating arrangement.
- Those who decline to wear a mask or follow the other steps will be required to quarantine at home.
* "Quarantined" refers to those required to do so at home. This number includes those quarantined due to exposure outside of the school.
** "Other" refers to those not assigned to a specific building (District Office staff, maintenance staff, satellite program, bus drivers, etc.)
This chart is updated weekly, on Fridays, or more frequently if needed.
