Osceola protocol if a student is tested positive for COVID-19 at school


Although the Government has allowed the schools to reopen in Osceola. But the parents have been asking what measures would be taken if their kids will test positive for COVID-19 after going to school. So, Osceola District has opened up its policy.

Disinfection of schools

A school board meeting was held on Tuesday in which Dr. Debra Pace, the superintendent addressed the parents and said that each upcoming situation is completely new for us. We must look into the details of every situation. Here we’ll have a look at the process that we are planning to use.

Dr. Pace also described that the employees will be trained to ask the list of questions in case of unusual circumstances in Osceola schools.

These questions included: Who was tested positive for coronavirus? How long that person remained at the school and when did he leave? How much social distancing was practiced by that person?

After answering the questions, administrators demonstrated that they’ll go along with the chart of instructions for what to do next.


Pace further added that if we would found any direct contact with the patient, or in case the social distancing up to 6 feet has not practiced. Further, if the students were not wearing the masks or the persons were exposed to the patient longer than 15 minutes, or any direct contact has been made with the patient. In these circumstances, we’ll immediately notify those people. They would be isolated for 2 weeks. Also, we’ll recommend testing of the whole circle.

Dr. Pace stated that all the people with a history of indirect contact will be advised to check for specific symptoms.
