Latest Quarantine and Isolation Guidelines

  • Effective May 31, 2023, the Virginia Department of Health retired the "Interim Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention for Students, Teachers and Staff in Child Care, K-12 Schools, and Day Camp Settings" from the VDH Coronavirus K-12 Schools and Child Care Programs webpage. 

    MCPS has revised the isolation period to align with the current CDC recommendation and allow students to return to school on Day 6 with a mask. The staff protocol will not change at this time. MCPS staff have been utilizing the 5 day isolation period during this school year (2022-2023).

    This recommendation will be reviewed again in preparation for the upcoming school year (2023-2024).
