Covid-19 Policies/Procedures

(Updated 12.18.2020)

  • The State of Utah has shortened the length of time required for direct exposure quarantine. The new standards will be going into effect January 4, 2021, and are as follows: 

    • For Direct Exposure at School or a School Related Activity:

      • Provided both parties were wearing masks (not face shields), those who have had direct exposure (have been within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) at school, are not required to quarantine.

      • Parents will continue to be notified of the exposure, but the child may continue to attend school provided they are not exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19.

    • For Direct Exposure Outside of School:

      • Provided both parties were wearing masks, those who have had direct exposure (have been within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) to someone with whom they do not live, may get tested 7 days after exposure and return to school/work with negative test results.

      • If they choose not to test, they must quarantine for a maximum of 10 days.

    • For Exposure to Someone with Whom You Live:

      • Those who live with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 must quarantine for 10 days from the last day the positive person exhibits symptoms.

      • Quarantine may not begin until all people in the home have stopped exhibiting symptoms.

      • If a second person tests positive, the quarantine period starts over.

    • For Positive Test Results:

      • People who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for 10 days from the date symptoms first manifested, or 10 days from the testing date – whichever is earlier.

      • Additionally, people recovering from positive test results must be fever free for 24 hours, and their respiratory symptoms need to have resolved for 24 hours.
