      2023-24 COVID Guidelines

      • Pickerington Schools follows Franklin County Public Health's guidance on COVID illness and exposure. Please adhere to the following guidelines if you have tested positive for COVID or live with someone who has tested positive for COVID.

        COVID Test Positive: 

        • Stay home for five days, regardless of your vaccination status. 
        • If you test positive for COVID-19, you should stay home (which is called isolation) for 5 days. Day 0 is your first full day of symptoms.
        • After 5 days, you may end isolation if you are fever-free for 24 hours (without use of fever-reducing medicine) AND your symptoms are improving. If you had a moderate or severe illness, you may need to isolate yourself longer and should talk to a doctor.

        When to Remove Your Mask: 

        • After you have ended isolation, when you are feeling better (no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and symptoms improving, wear your mask through day 10.


        • If you have access to an antigen test, you should consider using it. You may choose to remove your mask prior to the 10 days by using an antigen test. If you have two consecutive negative antigen tests that are 48 hours apart, you can remove your mask prior to day 10. Testing should not occur before you complete your isolation period, as described above. Don’t start testing until day 6.

        If you ended isolation but your COVID-19 symptoms come back, you should restart your isolation period back to day 0. Regardless of when you end isolation, it is important to wear a well-fitted mask when indoors and in public settings through day 10.
