Re: Blow that whistle
According to TEA, schools are no longer required to do contact tracing if they don’t want to. Our district sends those home who are actually positive for COVID and send out a letter saying that a student or teacher on a certain campus had tested positive for COVID along with reporting it to the county.
Close contact is no longer done mainly because few of those close contacts we quarantined actually contracted COVID.
However, we’ve already had to close our middle school campus for 3 days because of a lack of staff due to COVID.
