Per Ohio Department of Health Director's Order, we are now required to report positive COVID-19 cases from students and school staff to the local health department. In our case that would be the Lawrence County Health Department.
Attached is the full Order which is also now contained in our COVID-19 folder on the documents page.
The important piece is:
2. Effective September 9, 2020, parents and guardians of students and school staff who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, whether by laboratory test or through clinical examination are encouraged to notify their school no later than twenty-four (24) hours after receiving a confirmed diagnosis.
To notify Tri-State STEM+M of a positive case, please contact Mrs. Shelby Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Schoology message.
More information will follow along with a new board policy regarding COVID-19 Case Reporting.
