Collierville Schools Positive COVID-19 Case Protocol
Guidelines will change as updates are provided by the CDC and Shelby County Department of Health.
Schools do not have the capability to screen students or staff to identify cases of COVID-19. If a student or staff member has a confirmed case of COVID-19, local health officials will help identify those individuals and will follow up on next steps.
All Collierville Schools will implement strict prevention measures, including, but not limited to, face coverings, seating charts, cleaning and disinfecting protocols and physical distancing. For more details on these protocols, please see the Reopening and Recovery Plan.
In the event that a student or faculty member is determined to have a confirmed case of COVID-19, the following measures will be taken to ensure the safety of the students and staff who were potentially exposed:
An individual student or staff member reports that they have a confirmed case of COVID-19
(this could be a report from the Shelby County Health Dept. or a self-report)
1.The COVID-19 positive individual will follow the direction of the Health Dept for self-care measures and self-isolation2 measures
2. SCHD, with the help of the Collierville Schools, will identify individuals who have been in close contact1 with the COVID-19 positive person
3. These identified individuals may be asked to self-quarantine3 for 14 days at their home
Absences due to COVID-19 will be excused
Students will be able to keep up with their classmates via virtual learning
CS employees should refer to the employee guidance memo from HR for further information
Two or more students or staff members within a cohort or common area (such as a specific hallway) report that they have a confirmed case of COVID-19
(this could be a report from the Shelby County Health Dept. or a self-report)[i]
1. The COVID-19 positive individuals will follow the direction of the Health Dept. for self-care measures and isolation measures
2. The specific cohort or students/staff in a specific area of school may be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days and shift to remote learning.
Allowing smaller cohorts or hallways to self-quarantine will allow for students and staff who were not likely exposed to continue with traditional in-person education
Two or more students or staff members in varying parts of the building or in different grade levels report that they have a confirmed case of COVID-19
(this could be a report from the Shelby County Health Dept. or a self-report)
1. The COVID-19 positive individuals will follow the direction of the Health Dept. for self-care measures and self-isolation measures
2. The entire school may close for a period of 2-5 days, up to 14 days to allow for contact tracing, conducted by the SCHD, and may reopen if it is determined that the threat to the school at large is low
3. All students and staff will be asked to self-quarantine at the time of school closure and shift to remote learning
Collierville Schools will follow the guidance of the SCHD when determining to close an entire school. The SCHD will determine the potential risk for students and staff when there are several cases of COVID-19 positive individuals and Collierville Schools will provide support and cooperation to the SCHD to allow for thorough contact tracing, while maintaining student privacy.
