  • Have a negative test on or after Day 5 of the onset of symptoms or a positive test, whichever was first.
  • Home tests are acceptable for Day 5 testing. (negative test results should be shared with school health or office staff).
  • Individuals can return on Day 6 if they meet the requirements above.
  • Individuals who still have symptoms or continue to test positive on Day 5 or after may return once they have a negative test, are fever free for at least 24 hours, and are without symptoms.

  • Day 1 = First full day after symptoms develop or test collection
