Overview

  • The Richmond County School System works daily to ensure the health and well-being of our students and staff by developing, implementing and delivering school health services throughout the year. Occasionally, extraordinary efforts are required to meet particular challenges, such as the recent concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19).

     

    We are currently following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH), the Georgia Department of Education, and other local, state, and federal agencies. This page has been established to provide resources and communications from the system to our community.

     

    Close Contact Protocol

    Our school system is currently using the following COVID-19 close contact protocol as approved by the DPH:

    • All contacts with COVID-19 symptoms regardless of vaccination status or COVID-19 history are required to follow DPH quarantine guidelines

    • All contacts where both individuals are properly wearing a mask when the exposure occurred, are NOT required to quarantine and should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after exposure

    • Contact where no mask was worn, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine and should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after exposure

    • Contact where no mask was worn, unvaccinated individuals are required to quarantine and should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after exposure

     

    If you or your child experiences any COVID symptoms, is awaiting coronavirus test results, or has been directed to self-isolate, please do not report to school. If you have questions or experience symptoms, please notify your school immediately.
