Quarantine Timeline Changes
Posted on 10/11/2021

Effective immediately, Puyallup School District has reduced the days an individual must quarantine after exposure to someone who tests positive for COVID-19 from 14 days to 10 days.   

Consistent with guidance provided by TPCHD, this new protocol allows staff and students who have been identified as a close contact the ability to return to school after 10 days without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.   

 Close contacts are still expected to:

     • Continue monitoring for symptoms until day 14.
     • 
Get tested if symptoms develop during the 10-day period and remain in quarantine the full 14 days.
     • 
Contact the school with any positive results.

 

Are you currently in quarantine? 

Effective immediately, staff and students currently in quarantine may return four days sooner than originally communicated without testing and if no symptoms are present.  Individuals scheduled to return this week (Oct. 13, 14, or 15) can return to school tomorrow, Oct. 12, without testing and if no symptoms are present.   

 The following table provides new return to school dates, for those originally scheduled to return after Oct. 15.
