Updated guidelines from the NYC DOE COVID Situation Room (January 2022) 

- Students who share a classroom space with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 must test twice with provided at-home tests within 5 days; one test on the day the student learns of the exposure and one test on day 5 (the day of exposure is day 0). If the exposed students develops symptoms before day 5, the second test should be used at the time symptoms begin.

-Students who have recovered from COVID 19 do not need to follow above guidelines

-Students younger than Kindergarten must quarantine for 10 days after exposure in the classroom. However, a negative at-home test on day 5, 6 or 7 will allow the student to return to school on day 8.
