D91 Updates Quarantine Guidelines


The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has issued new guidance on quarantine periods for K-12 students and staff who have been in close contact with someone at school who has tested positive for COVID-19. Idaho Falls School District 91 plans to implement this new guidance beginning today, Monday, Jan. 11.  If the person who tests positive and the person in close contact were both wearing masks that cover their nose and mouth, the close contact does not need to isolate for 10 days as previously directed. They can continue to attend in-person classes, but should monitor themselves closely for COVID-19 symptoms. Learn more.
