Changes were made by both the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Education Agency on December 2 and 3 that impact how schools deal with individuals who have been in "close contact' with someone testing positive for COVID-19.  

These changes actually lessened the number of days of quarantine required for those meeting the definition of close contact from 14 days to 10 and possibly 7 days.

Guidance documents from the CDC and TEA can be found at:

MISD has updated our Covid Flowchart to reflect these most recent changes.
