Information for Parents and the Community regarding COVID-19 in the Wyoming Valley West School District
Beginning February 28, 2022, Wyoming Valley West School District will implement the new CDC Guidelines. Masking will be optional for all students and staff in buildings and on school transportation.
Masking will still be required when:
- An individual who is identified as a close contact to a COVID-19 case, but does not have to quarantine because they are either current with their series of vaccine doses or have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days. These individuals must wear a mask for 10 days from the day of last contact.
- Individuals who were exposed to COVID-19 and must quarantine at home will also be required to wear a mask for days 6-10 upon their return to school.
- Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and return must wear a mask for days 6-10 upon their return.
If someone is Positive
You are immediately required to isolate yourself for 5 days beginning the day of the onset of symptoms OR the day of your COVID-19 test. (No one should be physically present if they are symptomatic) *The District uses the day of test for the start of isolation/quarantine.(day zero)
Persons who test positive for COVID-19
Must isolate for 5 days. If after 5 days, the patient is asymptomatic or has resolving symptoms, their isolation period is over; however, they should still wear a mask around others until day 10.
When in doubt, stay out.
Do not congregate in groups whenever possible,
Wash your hands frequently or sanitize if soap and water are not available.
