IMPORTANT New CDC Quarantine Options On December 2, 2020, the CDC released two options to shorten the time that someone exposed to COVID-19 should stay home and separate from others during the 14-day quarantine period. The CDC has not shortened or altered the length of the incubation period for COVID-19. The CDC continues to recommend staying home and away from others for the entirety of the 14-day quarantine as the best way to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. The two alternative options to a full 14-day quarantine, as released by the CDC, lessen the self-separation and movement restrictions of quarantine only for exposed persons who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 and remain asymptomatic according to the following criteria in this document

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM ALL THE BISHOPS IN IOWA Please read this letter regarding taking the COVID Vaccine.

FLU vs COVID Please review this most recent document from Polk County Health Dept. If you haven’t already, please consider getting the flu shot soon. The flu shot is recommended for everyone ages six months and older annually. Unfortunately we are unable to hold a flu vaccine clinic here at the school this year, but if you need help finding a location to obtain the vaccine, don’t hesitate to contact the school nurse with questions. 515 255 3162 x113
