Michigan Updates Quarantine Guidance for Masked Students
LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Michigan has issued updated guidance to help schools and local health departments navigate whether asymptomatic students exposed to a coronavirus-infected student should quarantine at home or stay in school.
Unvaccinated but masked students who were less than 3 feet from a COVID-positive student now can remain in school but only if they are tested daily for seven days after the exposure.
Such a student previously would have been told to isolate for 10 days or seven days with a negative test.
The recommendation is among many included for the first time in a school-specific document for the general public.
