22-23 COVID Isolation Guidance

My child isn’t feeling well, what should I do?

Tri-Valley will be following the latest recommended guidance from NYSED & CDC which supersedes all previous guidance.  


People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms.

Possible symptoms include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms.

When to Isolate: Regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19. 



If you are exposed, wear a well-fitting mask for a full 10-day period and get tested at least 5 days after close contact or sooner if symptoms develop regardless of vaccination status.


You can end your isolation.


If you had symptoms:

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home.
  • Day 0 of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when you tested positive
  • Day 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started

If you had no symptoms:

  • Day 0 is the day you were tested (not the day you received your positive test result)
  • Day 1 is the first full day following the day you were tested
  • If you develop symptoms within 10 days of when you were tested, the clock restarts at day 0 on the day of symptom onset

Health Office Best Practice

Students should NOT attend school when they have a fever. Students need to be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication.
