    • A COVID+ case that is part of the 14-day rolling count for a school building includes any individual (students or staff) with a confirmed case of COVID-19 who was physically present in the school setting while infectious, including but not limited to: instruction, work, sports, or extracurricular activities.


    • A temporary closure can happen with minimal notice. We stress that families have a plan in place for students if a parent/guardian is unable to be at home.



    • Each school has its own 14-day rolling period and begins when there is a reportable COVID+ case in the building.


    • A closure may be 1-14 days in length, depending upon the building and the number of reportable cases. If case investigations, contact tracing, and cleaning and disinfecting can be accomplished in a faster time frame, the length of closure time may be shortened. This will be determined in consultation with the PA Department of Health.


    • When the school reopens for in-person instruction after a temporary closure, the 14-day rolling period resets AND the case count will reset to 0.
