COVID-19 Protocol Change for K-12 Schools
During a press conference on Tuesday, October 19, Governor Asa Hutchinson in conjunction with the Arkansas Department of Health announced changes to the COVID-19 Protocol for K-12 schools. This change is limited to the school setting.
The definition of a close contact in a school setting has changed from within six feet for fifteen minutes to within three feet for fifteen minutes.
THREE EXCEPTIONS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE A CLOSE CONTACT TO QUARANTINE:
1. Fully vaccinated – If a person is fully vaccinated and is exposed to a positive case, they are not required to quarantine.
2. 90-day immunity – If a person is in their 90-day immunity window from having been positive and they are exposed to a positive case, they are not required to quarantine.
3. Proper mask wearing – If BOTH a positive case and a close contact are properly masked during the exposure period, the close contact is not required to quarantine.
