At the direction of the Wayne County Health Department, Dearborn Public Schools has updated its guidelines for quarantines, isolation and close contact notifications. Those who are quarantining or isolating due to COVID can now return as early as Day 6 under certain conditions. Please see our new quarantine and isolation guidance for more details.
Also at the direction of the health department, the district will no longer be tracking close contacts at school. If someone with COVID is confirmed to have been at school, all the students in that class will be notified, but no quarantine will be required. Students and staff should monitor for symptoms and continue to wear their face masks properly. Find more details in the district’s First Bell article.
