If you have been put in quarantine:

--It does not mean you have the Covid-19 virus, but you may have been directly exposed.

--It does not mean that everyone in the school has been exposed to the virus.  In many cases, the exposure is limited to a particular grade or class. 

--You will not come to school for the time that has been set by the school to stay home.  This ranges between 10-14 days.

--You need to stay home. If you have the virus, you could spread it if you are out and about. 

--If your family stays together, you will all need to quarantine.  If your family quarantines separately, those who were not possibly exposed could continue with work outside the home.  

--If your family quarantines together, consider using grocery pickup to avoid spreading the virus in stores.


Primary exposure:   Possible direct exposure from someone that had a test come back positive.  This will result in a quarantine.

Secondary exposure: No direct exposure from someone that had a test come back positive.  You will not be quarantined, but be observant if your health changes and you develop symptoms.  


If you have questions, please call your school principal, school nurse, or Ozark Mountain School District Point of Contact Person - Ariel Kelly at St. Joe School.
