When Action Will Be Taken
Scenario #1: An outbreak defined by Illinois Department of Public Health
Five COVID-19 infections (laboratory-positive by PCR or antigen testing) occurring within 14 calendar days of each other in individuals in the same classroom would meet the case definition for an outbreak in a Pre-K-12 school. This is because the cases would be epidemiologically linked (by known exposure) with respect to place (same classroom) and time (within 14 calendar days). This would prompt an investigation by the Local Health Department that may result in recommendations for testing and quarantining all students/staff in the affected classroom.
Scenario #2: The Marian Catholic administrative team may opt to transition to eLearning temporarily or long-term if it is in the best health interests of the school community or if rising transmission rates in the general community make it unwise or infeasible to continue on-campus learning.
