Alabama Department of Public Health's Back to School Guidance has been updated to provide an optional modified quarantine strategy for COVID-19 exposures/close contacts in the K-12 school setting. The change in quarantine for unvaccinated K-12 students, teachers, or staff allows schools to use a "test to stay" strategy for asymptomatic (no symptoms) close contacts after 7 days of self-quarantine instead of the 10 to 14 day previously recommended close contact quarantine. There is NO change in isolation guidance (isolation for 10 to 14 days) for students, teachers or staff infected with COVID-19. See this change and others at go.usa.gov/xMyWJ.
