What is the district's protocol for tracking COVID-19 cases within a school?

Posted by:

STEP 1: REPORT

In the event a student or staff person receive a positive test result for COVID-19, they must first notify the school or workplace. 

STEP 2: TRACE

Upon receipt of the reported positive COVID-19 case as an APS School or office location, we work directly with our local boards of health (Fulton County and Dekalf County) as they conduct contact tracing. 

STEP 3:NOTIFY & INFORM

Based on the guidance provided by the local BOH and our APS health services department, notification are sent to impacted staff, students and families. 

STEP 4:QUARANTINE

If an individual is found to have close contacts while contagious, those who were in close contact will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
