Southern Local's COVID Precautions

The health and well-being of our students and staff is the first priority of the Southern Local School District. The district administration is meeting with the Columbiana County Department of Health on a weekly basis to keep abreast of the latest developments with the Ohio Department of Health along with preventive measures to protect the safety of our school community. The district has received CARES Act funding to provide our students and staff with personal protective equipment when needed, hand sanitizing stations, upgraded ventilation and air flow capacities, updating high touch areas to minimize exposure and other precautionary measures to reduce potential exposures. Masks are required in district buildings. Masks are required for all school transportation per federal requirement.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S
NEW GUIDELINES FOR COVID EXPOSURE

October 28, 2021

 

Dear Southern Local Community,

Information from the Ohio Department of Health states that 100% of children hospitalized this fall, between the ages of 12 -18 for COVID-19, were unvaccinated and that "vaccination is our best defense to COVID".
This information, along with schools having shown low rates of transmission, have brought about the following recommendations for school settings.
The rules DO NOT change for a home exposure.

Mask to Be In School for an Exposure

  1. Exposed person masks for 14 days and may come to school wearing a mask.
  2. Person self-monitor/parent monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.
  3. Isolate and test if experiencing symptoms, regardless of severity.
  4. Person May discontinue procedures on day 8 if...
    1. Test between days 5-7 from exposure
    2. Test is negative

*Test must be monitored and can be a home self-administered test. A tele-health or any test that reports to the health department is acceptable. It must be documented.

Mask to Play for Sports and Clubs

  1. Students must get tested immediately after being notified of exposure and have a negative test result to continue the activity.
  2. Person must wear a mask on the sidelines, locker room and anywhere it does not interfere with their sport and breathing.
  3. Person tests between days 5 - 7 to assure that he or she is negative.
  4. If negative... resume normal activity and discontinue quarantine procedures Day 8.
