DCSD’s Layered COVID Mitigation Protocols

DCSD will follow guidance from the Douglas County Department of Health with Jogan Health Solutions, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Centers for Disease Control regarding Isolation and Quarantine protocols. Students, teachers, or staff who are experiencing symptoms of COVID, regardless of vaccination status, should stay home and seek testing. Persons should also stay home when experiencing any other acute illness and refer to their healthcare provider for medical care as needed.

  • Staying Home When Showing Signs of Illness
    Please continue to do your part by keeping students home, and/or staying home yourself, when showing symptoms of illness. Please reference this symptom screening document* for guidance on when it is safe to return to school after illness. *NOTE, the Return to Learn Symptom Screening document is in the process of being updated by the CDPHE and we will link the updated document as soon as it becomes available. 

  • Isolation
    Generally, if an individual has tested positive for COVID, or is demonstrating symptoms commonly associated with COVID they will be asked to isolate in alignment with guidance from the CDC, CDPHE, and Douglas County Department of Health. This updated guidance reduces the recommended time in isolation for those in the general population with COVID-19 from 10 to five days, if asymptomatic on day five, followed by an additional five days wearing a mask when around others. This change is based on data showing that the majority of COVID-19 transmission occurs early in the course of illness.
