COVID-19 FAQ

COVID-19 Protocol:

Please note that for any MCA student or staff member who tests positive for Covid-19, or if a member of their household tests positive for Covid-19, the following protocols apply:

1.    1. MCA student or staff member must quarantine for (minimum) 10 days after the onset of symptoms or a positive Covid test, whichever occurs first. The student or staff member may return after 10 days in quarantine without having another Covid test (if fever-free for the 72 hours just prior to returning without fever-reducing medications). May return to school on the 11th day.

-OR-

2.    2. If the MCA student or staff member wants to return to school early (prior to the 11th day after the standard 10-day quarantine), the student or staff member may return on “Day 7” if the student or staff member has a negative lab test taken at least 5 days after the onset of symptoms or a positive Covid test result AND if fever-free for at least 72 hours without fever-reducing medications.

·       Negative lab tests must either be a “rapid” or “PCR” test from a lab (example: doctor’s office, urgent care clinic, CVS testing site, etc.) and NOT an at-home self-test kit.

·       -Proof of the negative lab test result is required to be presented for early return to school. The written test results may be presented in person or via email to the appropriate school’s attendance administrator or to the school nurse.
