COVID-19 PROTOCOL INFORMATION
CONTACT THE CP SPORTS MEDICINE STAFF
COVID-19 has been a source great stress for all of us over the last year and a half, we understand the confusion surrounding those who test positive and wish to return to activity. Below is some general information regarding the Conroe ISD protocol in coordination with the UIL/TEA on students returning to campus and returning to activity.
Parents must submit a confirmed postive test to the medical staff (Athletic Trainer or Nurse) as soon as possible. The student must remain off campus for 10 days (after date of positive test or from when symptoms began), on the 11th day they may return to campus (NOT ACTIVITY) as long as they are symptom and fever free for 24 hours.
MY STUDENT TESTED POSITVE, NOW WHAT?
The school nurse ( - College Park, - Knox Jr High) and/or will guide you on when your student may return.
When a student is allowed to return to campus it does not mean they are allowed to return to activity.
Per GA-38, school systems cannot require students or staff to wear a mask. GA-38 addresses government-mandated face coverings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Other authority to require protective equipment, including masks, in an employment setting is not necessarily affected by GA-38.
School systems must allow individuals to wear a mask if they choose to do so.
FACE COVERINGS & MASKS
Schools must follow related to students who have been identified as close contacts
STUDENTS WHO ARE CLOSE CONTACTS
The UIL requires students who participate in UIL Marching Band and Athletics must recieve specific medical clearance from a physician prior to returning to participation.
Parents may use our form to bring to the appointment with the physician to assist with clearing their student.
Students who have a positive individual in their household are required to quarantine for 10 days after the date of last exposure unless they meet the following criteria:
1 Student is fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and shows no symptoms of COVID-19.
Fully vaccinated students should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if
they don’t have symptoms, and should strongly consider wearing a mask indoors
for 14 days following exposure.
2 Student has had a documented COVID-19 positive result within the previous 3
months, has fully recovered, and remains without COVID-19 symptoms such as
cough and shortness of breath.
**Unless a student meets the above exemption criteria, the student must complete the 10-day quarantine period and may not return to school during the isolation period of the positive individual in the same home.**
A MEMBER OF OUR HOUSEHOLD TESTED POSITVE, NOW WHAT?
