Efforts by NORTH PALOS SCHOOL DISTRICT 117 to mitigate any potential spread of the COVID-19 virus include:
- interviews and investigation to identify close contacts with individuals who were within six feet for a prolonged period of time (15 cumulative minutes or more)
- mandatory quarantine for all confirmed cases and close contact individuals for the amount of time indicated by the Illinois Department of Public Health
- continued cleaning and disinfecting of school facilities
- continued wearing of face masks
- continued social distancing as much as possible
- tracking and monitoring of failed health screening data
Everyone should monitor their health and stay at home if they develop symptoms. Sick persons should contact their healthcare provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should seek medical care immediately. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep the child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, the North Palos School District COVID Team at [email protected], and your local health department.
