Isolation & Quarantine Update
Recently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a new recommendation that reduces quarantine time for individuals who test positive for COVID-19 who are not showing symptoms from ten to five days. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) also supports the new recommendation. PSA's school leaders in collaboration with health officials and our board of directors, are working on updated guidelines to align with this new recommendation to be announced in the coming days.
As always, please keep your students at home if they are feeling unwell or have been exposed to anyone who tested positive for covid. We encourage staff and families to continue testing regularly. Remember that we are in it together and need to take care of each other.
A great way to mitigate the spread of covid and/or minimize the severity of symptoms is to get vaccinated. Here's how to find vaccination clinics near you!
