COVID Guidelines
 

The guidelines listed below are just an overview of Holy Family's current guidelines. 

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus is for all community members to stay home when they are experiencing the symptoms that indicate an infectious illness. The purpose of the daily COVID-19 screening is to prevent students, faculty, staff, and families from coming to campus if they have symptoms related to any infectious illness including COVID-19.
• Temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher (CDC states 100.4)
• Sore throat cough (for students with chronic cough due to allergies or asthma, a change in their cough from baseline)
• Difficulty breathing (for students with asthma, a change from their baseline breathing)
• Diarrhea or vomiting
• New loss of taste or smell
• New onset of severe headache, especially with fever

The screening will also include making a determination about whether or not the student is currently considered a close contact.  If they are a close contact and in quarantine, they should not attend school. Signs related to the symptoms of COVID-19 will be visibly posted around the campus and building entrances. All individuals should screen themselves and/or their children daily for COVID-19 symptoms.

Close contact is defined as follows:

Close Contact through Proximity and Duration of Exposure: someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person (laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness) for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes).

An infected person can spread SARS-CoV-2 starting from 2 days before they have any symptoms (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days before the positive specimen collection date) until they meet the criteria for discontinuing home isolation.

Exception*: In the K–12 indoor classroom setting, the close contact definition excludes students who were within 3 to 6 feet of an infected student (laboratory-confirmed or a clinically compatible illness) if both the infected student and the exposed student(s) correctly and consistently wore well-fitting masks the entire time.

*This exception does not apply to teachers, staff, or other adults in the indoor classroom setting.
