COVID-19 Information & Resources
Below are guidelines, resources and information as we continue to navigate the challenges created by COVID-19 in our community.
As of May 11, 2023, the Federal Public Health Emergency related to COVID-19 has officially ended. However, RSD is still committed to keeping everyone in our schools healthy. We have taken the guidelines recommended below from the Washington State Department of Health.
Isolation/Return to Work & School
If you test positive for COVID-19, please isolate at home for 5 days from your first onset of symptoms. You may return to work/school after 5 days AND if symptoms have improved AND you have not had a fever for 24 hours without use of fever reducing-medication.
If you test positive for COVID-19 but do not have symptoms, you must still isolate at home for 5 days. If you develop symptoms after testing positive, your 5-day isolation should start over.
How to Calculate Your Isolation Period
Symptomatic: If you have symptoms, day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed. You may return to work AFTER 5 full days of isolation (not including day 0).
Asymptomatic: If you have not had any symptoms, day 0 is the date you were tested. Day 1 is the first full day after the specimen was collected for your positive test. You may return to work AFTER 5 full days of isolation (not including day 0).
If you have questions about how to calculate your isolate period, please email Kellie Lacey, Assistant Director of HR, at email@example.com.
