Updated Covid Guidance for Newton Falls Schools

Anyone with Covid-like symptoms should stay home and get tested.

Traditional symptoms include fever/chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, and nausea/vomiting/diarrhea

Omicron variant symptoms (most common current variant) include sore throat, congestions, runny nose, and cough (may develop later)

Individuals who test positive for Covid must isolate at home for five days. Day one is the day after symptom onset or a positive test. They can return to work/school on day six if their symptoms are improving but they must wear a tight fitting mask on days six through ten. Alternatively, if they take two rapid tests forty-eight hours apart starting on day six and both are negative, they can discontinue wearing the mask.

Individuals who are exposed to someone with Covid do not need to quarantine if they are asymptomatic; however, it is recommended that they wear a mask for ten days.
