Students attending school in Bryan County who have had close contact with someone positive for COVID-19 but are asymptomatic will no longer have to quarantine and can remain in school, the district announced Friday afternoon.
Bryan County Schools new guidelines mirror Georgia Department of Public Health guidance.
Here’s a look at an email blast sent out to parents late Friday evening.
Dear Bryan County Schools Families,
The Governor and Georgia Department of Public Health recently released a new administrative order to give guidance to Georgia school districts regarding COVID-19. The intent of this amended administrative order is to have more kids in school by allowing asymptomatic students that are identified as a close contact to remain in school no matter their vaccination status. As a result, asymptomatic students will no longer be required to quarantine. As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we must remain flexible and update procedures, as necessary. Based on the latest amendment to the Georgia Department of Public Health Administrative Order, the district’s COVID-19 Guidelines have been revised. Please take a moment to review the updated guidelines for Bryan County Schools. Please note protocols may change at any time, but rest assured Bryan County Schools will promptly notify you should any additional changes occur.
Thank you for your partnership and concerted efforts to keep our students, staff, and families safe.
