1/7/2022 Updated Quarantine and Isolation Guidance

Posted by Madison Communications on 1/7/2022

Good morning Madison Families,

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) recently updated their COVID-19 isolation and quarantine guidance.  

Under the new guidance, students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for 5 full days and can return to school after 5 days as long as they are fever free for 24 hours, have improved symptoms and wear a mask.  

*Students and staff must wear a mask in order to return to school after 5 days.*

Students who are exposed to COVID-19 and do not participate in the Masked-Test-to-Stay Program will be asked to quarantine for 5 days and wear a mask for an additional 5 days.

You can read the updated CDC guidelines here.

Our District and school Mitigation Plans have been updated to align with the new guidance provided by the CDC and MCDPH.

Additionally, the CDC now recommends that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series. For more information, click here.
