Changes to the Covid19 policy

 

 

 

 

The Mississippi State Department of Health has amended COVID-19 guidelines to reflect updated CDC recommendations for K-12 schools.

South Panola School District has made the following changes to our COVID-19 policies in order to adhere to the new Mississippi State Department of Health guidelines: 

 

- The isolation and school exclusion period for a positive case of COVID-19 has changed from 14 days to 10 days for consistency with current CDC guidance.

The 14-day quarantine for close contacts has not changed.

 

- Symptom and temperature screening recommendations have been added.

Temperature equal to 100 F or higher should be considered a fever for screening purposes.
