Staff:

  • Self-screen daily before reporting to work. 
  • Stay home if you are sick. 
  • Staff members should report a positive COVID-19 test result or symptoms to their supervisor who can provide further instructions or guidance.

General:

  • DO NOT come to school or work if you are waiting on test results. OKCPS expects you to stay home until you’ve received your results.
  • In accordance with the CDC, after testing positive, students and staff should stay home for at least 5 days.
  • After testing positive, students and staff can return to school or work on day 6 if their symptoms have improved and are fever free.
