Current NYS School Guidance
Katonah- Lewisboro School District specific guidance for COVID-19
Covid Testing: NYSTesting
When a student tests positive for Covid:
Day Zero: The day of positive test or the day symptoms began
Days 1-5: Quarantine (Isolate at home)
Days 6-10: Return to School Wearing a Mask if Fever Free 24 hours without the use of medication and asymptomatic
For Example, Test + on 1/9/23, and Symptoms started on 1/6/23. Day Zero: 1/6, Days 1-5: 1/7-1/11 Days 6-10: 1/12-1/16
For Example, Test + on 1/9/23 and Asymptomatic, Day Zero: 1/9, Days 1-5: 1/10-1/14, Days 6-10: 1/15-1/19
When students are ill, or not feeling well:
We are now currently accepting rapid Antigen tests to return to school if symptomatic. A picture of a negative rapid antigen test and the student needs to be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications, and symptoms must be improving. Another option is sending test results from the doctor's office or medical clearance to return to school, and the student needs to be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medications, and symptoms must be improving.
