COVID Guidance Update Jan. 2

Jan 02, 2022

Dear BCSD Parents/Guardians,

Happy New Year! As you may be aware, last week the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released updated information regarding shortening the recommended isolation period for individuals testing positive. As a result, we have worked closely with the Scott County Health Department to update our District COVID-19 Protocols. Until the forthcoming updated CDC guidance for PreK-12 schools is available, below please find the updated BCSD COVID-19 protocols. As additional guidance and information becomes available, we will monitor and update protocols as needed.

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration in keeping our students and staff safe while in school. We value your partnership in the education of your student(s).

Warm regards,

District Administration

UPDATED BCSD COVID-19 PROTOCOLS (January 2, 2022)

COVID Positive

Individuals Who Have Tested Positive:

  • Must remain home for the full 10 days (current district protocol); OR
  • If an individual is asymptomatic after 5 days and fever has been absent for 24 hours, the individual can leave their home, resume regular activities, and must continue to mask around others for 5 additional days.


Individuals Who Were Exposed to Someone with COVID-19 (Quarantine):

Until the forthcoming CDC guidance for PreK-12 schools is available, BCSD’s recommendations for COVID-19 quarantine-based on best practices (per CDC & Scott County Health Department)-are as follows:

If you:

  • Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago and are not boosted OR
  • Completed the primary series of J&J over 2 months ago and are not boosted OR
  • Are unvaccinated
  • Quarantine for 5 days. After that continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
  • However, if you can’t quarantine it is highly recommended that you wear a mask for 10 days. (Please note, best practice per CDC is to mask for 10 days).
  • Test on Day 5 if possible.

* If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.

If you:

  • Have been boosted OR
  • Completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months OR
  • Completed the primary series of J&J vaccine within the last 2 month
  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days.
  • Test on day 5, if possible.

*If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home.

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after completion of their vaccination series (i.e. 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine).

Contact your Primary Care Provider with any questions.
