Guidance for COVID-19-Related Absences

Due to a high volume of cases, the COVID Support team is experiencing significant delays. You may not receive a response or return to school letter, so please notify your school building of the reason for your child’s absence and use the following general guidance.
Please click this link for the school district's full COVID-19 Continuity of Service Plan.
 
• If an individual tests positive for COVID-19 and they are symptomatic, they may return to school on the 6th day after the first date of their symptom onset, so long as they are symptom-free, without medication, for 24 hours; stay home until fever is gone and other symptoms are better; 
• If an individual tests positive for COVID-19 and they are asymptomatic, they may return to school on the 6th day after their positive test; 
• If an employee or student have two or more COVID-19 symptoms - unless there is a documented medical condition that explains the symptoms - this person will need to stay home and provide an alternative diagnosis from a physician or receive a negative result on a PCR COVID-19 test;
• If an individual is exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual in a school-related setting, they may return to school immediately if they do not have any symptoms, and must continue to follow the school district's mask requirement; 
• If an individual is exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual outside of a school-related setting and their vaccinations are up-to-date, according to the below criteria, they may return to school immediately and must continue to follow the district mask mandate; testing on day 5 after exposure is recommended; 
• If an individual is exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual outside of a school-related setting and their vaccinations are not up-to-date, they must stay home and quarantine for 5 days, returning on day 6, and must follow the school district mask requirement upon their return. The student’s first day of quarantine starts on their last date of exposure. If the exposure occurred in the home, you may also refer to this FAQ document.
***PLEASE NOTE: Per the Wood County Health Department, 12-17 year olds who are fully vaccinated (regardless of timeframe and booster status) DO NOT need to quarantine.

Up-to-date vaccination is defined as having received the booster dose of any of the three vaccination types OR if you have received the primary series of Moderna in the last six months or Pfizer in the last five months or Johnson & Johnson within the last 2 months.
 
If you are reporting a positive case for a Perrysburg Schools student or employee and this person tested positive with a NON-PROCTORED home rapid test, please also notify using this link from the Wood County Health Department: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/COVIDSelfReportS
 
Thank you for your patience as we work hard to provide the healthiest learning environment possible.
