Culpeper Schools’ COVID Trends Hold, But Many Residents Cannot Get Tested | Local News


Of the third week students quarantined due to close contact at school, 35 attended AG Richardson Elementary School, 12 Emerald Hill Elementary School, 10 Farmington Elementary School, 29 Elementary School Pearl Sample, 15 Yowell Elementary School, 38 Culpeper Middle School, 32 Floyd T Binns Middle School, 24 attended Culpeper High and 12 attended Eastern View High.

Under its “Quick Links” section, the school division website refers to the latest report.

The division recently updated its COVID-19 mitigation plan to specify the length of student and family quarantines, which vary depending on when and with whom exposure to “close contact” occurs.

People identified as close contact with someone who tested positive for the novel coronavirus should be quarantined. Close contacts will be excluded from attending school and school activities or work, the division’s plan says.

In a school setting, close contact exposures will typically result in eight- to 14-day quarantines, the mitigation plan says.

In family, household and community settings, close contact exposures will typically result in quarantines of 17 to 24 days, according to federal guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and the Virginia Department of Health, the plan says.
