Response Protocols

  • Cleaning Following a Positive COVID-19 Case

    In addition to the daily cleaning protocols, after notification of a positive COVID-19 case in a building, high touch point surfaces and potentially impacted areas will be isolated and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. 

    Returning to Work or School

    A student or staff member who tests positive for COVID-19 will be required to stay home for a time period based on current CDC guidelines. Please note that learning will not be interrupted as students will be able to continue with virtual learning. 

    After receiving a positive test, a student or staff member should:

    • Report a positive case to the school or supervisor. 
    • Stay home for 5 days.
      • Please note: OKCPS will also continue to require any individual with a mask exemption who tests positive to isolate (stay home) for 10 days. If the individual is willing to wear a mask for 5 days, they can return to school after 5 days of isolation.
    • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
    • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves. *OKCPS defines “fever resolves” as no fever without fever reducing medication for 24 hours.

    Please review the CDC guidance regarding travel if you plan to travel during the school year.
