Positive Cases in Isolation
Owasso Public Schools is following CDC and Tulsa County Health Department recommendations by requiring all students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 to remain in isolation for at least 10 days beginning on the date of the onset of symptoms. Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 must meet ALL conditions of the Return to School criteria before returning to OPS buildings:
24 hours fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication
10 days have passed since the onset of symptoms
Improved respiratory symptoms
Should a school be made aware of a possible COVID-19 exposure in a building, the school administrators will contact trace as was practiced during the 2020-21 school year. The end result of that contact tracing will be a notification to the appropriate parents stating that their student had close contact with an individual who has since tested positive for COVID-19. We ask that parents who receive such a notification monitor their child’s health and contact their family physician should the child develop symptoms.
Owasso Public Schools will not accept a test result from an over the counter, at-home COVID-19 test. Please seek out your family physician or visit one of the many health professionals who offer testing services for your COVID-19 testing needs.
In regard to communication regarding contact tracing:
If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 with a staff member, parents of students at that school building will be notified ONLY in the event their child has had possible close contact with the affected staff member.
If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 with a student, parents will be notified ONLY in the event their child has had possible close contact with the affected student.
If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 with a student or staff member within an extracurricular activity, parents will be notified ONLY in the event their child has had possible close contact with the affected individual.
