Montgomery County Public Schools Quarantine Guidelines

Students will now have to quarantine only when a close contact with COVID-19 symptoms tests positive or had a known exposure to someone with COVID-19.

The change comes as Montgomery County Public Schools begins rapid testing in school health rooms, which can help schools quickly determine what's COVID-19 and what is just a run-of-the-mill cold symptom. Students can only be tested if parents opt-in to testing.

Before this change, any contact of a student who showed symptoms had to be quarantined until test results came back negative. Parents complained that this will keep too many kids home from school unnecessarily.

I know several teachers that were glad they were teaching remotely from home, so as not to have to quarantine.

This certainly isn't a normal learning environment for kids living in the world today, so very sad.

This certainly is an improvement in policy Roy Kelley . It's great when leaders use common sense when making policy decisions.

I'm so glad my children are grown. I can't imagine the difficulty folks are experiencing while trying to hold down a job, and also making certain their children are safely educated.  Difficult times for all!
