Ohio adjusts quarantine guidance to keep more kids in school


October 27, 2021

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is adjusting its quarantine recommendations for schools in hopes of keeping students and educators in class more even if they’re exposed to someone who has the coronavirus in a school setting or activity, the state announced Monday.

The guidance is optional for schools and applies only when direct exposure to a positive case happens in a school environment, not outside of school.

Under the “mask to stay” part of the approach, even exposed students who were unmasked and unvaccinated could remain in class rather than quarantining at home as long as they wear a mask for 14 days after their last exposure, monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and get tested if they have symptoms. If they don’t develop symptoms and test negative between the fifth and seventh days, they could stop those extra precautions.
