1/6/22: Close contact and COVID guidance updates

Good afternoon,

We just received an update from Thurston County Public Health regarding interim K-12 guidance for asymptomatic close contacts from exposure in schools. 

The update to this guidance reflects the CDC clarification for individuals age 5-17 who have completed a primary series of vaccine are not required to quarantine as long as they are asymptomatic and test on day 5 after exposure.

We will keep you updated of any future changes. Please refer to our webpage for links to vaccine clinics or testing sites, as well as answers to other questions.

Thank you for working together to help keep schools open safely!
