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:
