BRENHAM ISD ANNOUNCES AMENDMENTS TO REOPENING PLAN

  

 

The Brenham ISD has announced amendments to their protocols found within the Brenham ISD's Reopening Plan.

The CDC and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) have recently made changes to their Public Health Guidance regarding the length of quarantine.

Among the amendments:

Any individual that is not having symptoms but has had close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case is not allowed on campus and can return:

10 days after the last close contact, so long as they continue to monitor themselves daily for symptoms and take appropriate mitigating precautions (provided in this guidance) through the 14th day from the last close contact with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case.

Or, seven days after the last close contact, after receiving a negative test result (administered at least five days after the last close contact), so long as they continue to monitor themselves daily for symptoms and take appropriate mitigating precautions (provided in this guidance) through the 14th day from the last close contact with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case.

Brenham ISD officials say they are confident in the process, taking into account the information from the governing state entities and the guidance from Washington Counties' local Health Authority, Dr. William Loesch, and Dr. Jones, Brenham ISD's Medical Health Director.

The district asks families to continue to monitor and screen students daily before sending them to school.  If a student or staff member is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home.

Students and staff currently in quarantine should remain at home and wait until their school nurse or campus administrator has contacted them.
