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