What is my school required to report?
Cases tested at the school resulting in a positive COVID-19 diagnosis must report the cases here.
Jackson County School Districts should still be reporting any cases to CovidSchools@jacksoncounty.org with name, date of birth, onset of symptoms and test date and type of test. (type of test would be home test, at school test or Dr or clinic test).
What are the new quarantine/masking guidelines?
After a COVID19 diagnosis, students must home-isolate for days 1-5. The student may return to school but should wear a mask on days 6-10.
This guidance is based on estimated timelines of contagion from the CDC.
Where do I get cleaning & maintenance supplies?
School facilities are the responsibility of the local school district and as such they are responsible for cleaning the buildings. Because this is a local control issue, the state does not have systems in place to provide additional supplies to districts.
Try these options for more information:
- Oregon School Facilities Management Association. They provide peer to peer information sharing and resources. Districts can get advice from other districts about how to address potential shortages of cleaning supplies.
- ORPIN. This is the public procurement network that public agencies, including school districts can use. Districts may be able to find cleaning supplies on this network that can help address any potential shortages.
- Local county emergency managers.
