Ohio Department of Health K-12 School Quarantine Guidelines

K-12 School Quarantine Guidelines

Governor Mike DeWine, recognizing that in-person classroom learning is critical for supporting the educational and social development of children and adolescents,* has set a goal of reopening K-12 schools to in-person learning by March 1, 2021. With sustained COVID-19 transmission continuing across our state, schools, and public health systems must adapt to ensure that the continued development of students is accompanied by protections for the overall health and well-being of students, teachers, and staff in our communities.

 

The below guidance can be used to address COVID-19 exposures in K-12 in-person learning environments. This guidance is supported by recent studies and pilot evaluations, including the Ohio Schools COVID-19 Evaluation, which indicate that the risk of COVID-19 transmission in schools may be limited with strict adherence to prevention measures in a monitored environment.
