Updated Covid Protocols

January 10, 2022

Over the past week the Labette County Health Department and the Kansas State Department of Health updated  Covid-19 protocols based on new CDC recommendations. USD 506 officials have been in close contact with the Labette County Health Department to make sure that our Covid-19 guidelines are up-to-date to help keep students and staff safe.

The following updates have been made:

1. If you are unvaccinated and have tested positive for Covid-19, you are considered to have 90 days of immunity following a positive test. Previously this number was 6 months.

2. Booster shots are now available for ages 12+.

3. You are only considered fully vaccinated if you have received all shots available for your age group. This means that if you are greater than age 12 being fully vaccinated requires the following: 

  • Pfizer Vaccine- 2 initial shots + a booster 5 MONTHS following your 2nd initial shot
  • Moderna Vaccine- 2 initial shots + a booster 6 MONTHS following your 2nd initial shot
  • Johnson & Johnson- 1 initial shot + a booster 2 MONTHS following your 1st initial shot

For ages 5-11, full vaccination status is having your 2 initial Pfizer shots.

4. If Exposure Occurs at Home:

  • If someone is exposed to a positive contact at home, the close contact will have a 15 day quarantine period. They will be asked to mask for 15 calendar days.
  • Regardless of vaccination status of the close contact, 15 days of masking will be required.
  • If the close contact is unvaccinated, they will be test on days 1-10 of their quarantine period.

5. If you are vaccinated, you must mask for days 1-10 after a close contact exposure, but testing will not be required.

6. If you are unvaccinated and considered a close contact from school or outside the Home:

  • Must wear a mask for days 1-10 after exposure
  • Must test on days 1-5 after exposure to stay at school
  • OR Quarantine for 10 days at home if masking and testing are refused

7. If you test positive:

  • Isolate for a minimum of 5 calendar days
  • Isolation can end after 5 full days if symptoms have improved and fever-free for 24 hours without medication. Isolation must continue if symptoms are present on day 5 or later.
  • Must wear a mask for days 6-10 after positive test
