Updated Guidance for "Close Contact" from CDC and TEA
Kim Edwards
Friday, December 04, 2020

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.
