Please review the UPDATED GUIDANCE from Harnett County Schools regarding the handling of a possible, suspected, presumptive, or confirmed case of COVID-19.
Individual contact tracing and exclusion from school of asymptomatic people after an identified exposure is no longer required. As a mask optional district, it is recommended that a mask be worn for 10 (ten) days after a confirmed exposure. It is also recommended that students be tested immediately if symptomatic and again after five days.
As a reminder, Harnett County Schools follows guidance from the CDC and NCDHHS included on pages 12 -16 of the StrongSchools NC Toolkit. The StrongSchools NC Toolkit, in its entirety, can be accessed electronically at https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/media/164/open .
