K-12 Quarantine in Ohio
The Ohio Department of Health’s goal is to keep K-12 students in school, in-person five days a week. To achieve this goal, schools must work with their local health departments to identify students who are direct contacts of a positive case. Our COVID-19 Response Team is working very closely with our Greene County schools on a daily basis to ensure they understand the process. This document explains the quarantine process in detail. Local health departments have authority to implement the quarantine and isolation process in accordance with Ohio Revised Code 3707.08.
