COVID Guidance

COVID GUIDANCE 

The Lamar County School District will closely adhere to the guidance of the ADPH and CDC to ensure the safety and well-being of all students, faculty, and staff. 

Beginning September 2nd, 2021, with the guidance of the ADPH, The Lamar County School nurses will not contact trace. We will leave that to the ADPH. We will focus on COVID-positive students and their family members at our schools. If a student or staff member tests positive we will report this to the ADPH per the COVID Report Card, and the positive person and any immediate family members (living in the same household) that are on campus would be asked to isolate themselves from campus for 10 days. If they are symptom-free after 10 days, then they can return to campus. Students and staff who are vaccinated or have had COVID within the last 3 months and remain symptom-free will not have to isolate themselves if they live in the home with a COVID-positive student.
