Quarantine Guidance (updated September 3, 2021)

  • A student or staff member will be quarantined if they are considered to be a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case if they were within three feet of the positive case while not wearing a mask.

  • Students and staff may be considered to be in "close proximity" of a positive COVID-19 case, but not required to quarantine, if they were wearing a mask while within three feet of the positive COVID-19 case. The student's parents will receive a call from the school district telling them that their child was considered to be in "close proximity" to the positive COVID-19 case. Parents may choose to keep their child at home to monitor for symptoms, but their child is not under quarantine.

  • Masks are required at Milford's elementary school buildings. A child is considered to be a "close contact" if the child was within three feet of the positive COVID-19 case for longer than 15 minutes while not wearing a mask, for example: during lunch. That child must quarantine.

  • Masks are optional at Milford's junior high and high school buildings. A junior high or high school student is considered a “close contact” of a positive COVID-19 case if they were not wearing a mask in school and they will be required to quarantine.

  • If a junior high or high school student is considered a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case and they are vaccinated, they do not need to quarantine, regardless if they were wearing a mask or not. However, they will be required to wear a mask while in school for the next 10 days.
