CDC updates regarding quarantine requirements after vaccination:
- Individuals who have been fully vaccinated – that is, 2 weeks or more have passed since the second dose in a 2-dose vaccine or the first dose in a 1-dose vaccine series – will not be required to quarantine following exposure, provided he/she does not develop new symptoms of COVID-19.
The Department of Health (DOH) has requested that we follow the current contact tracing protocol, regardless of vaccination status. They will contact the exposed individual to ensure no symptoms have developed, research their vaccination status in the state system, and provide further COVID education. The DOH will determine if the individual is exempt from quarantine. The Health Services Department, as well as the school nurses, will work diligently to assist staff and students in this process.

People are encouraged to use the Healthy Together app to identify and input information regarding their case. The information is linked with the Department of Health’s system. It may take up to 48 hours for the information to be processed. Department of Health main number 904-506-6081, option 8, press 1.
