The Danbury Public School District will reactivate its online dashboard today tracking COVID-19 cases.  There's a change this year, statewide, for how close contacts will be determined.  Students seated three feet from a positive person, if masks were consistently and correctly worn, do not need to quarantine if they don't have symptoms.  Vaccinated students and staff who are exposed to COVID and do not have symptoms will not need to quarantine, but according to Danbury's reopening plan should get tested three to five days after exposure and monitor for symptoms for 14 days. Those who are unvaccinated need to quarantine for 10 days and get tested three to five days after exposure. Assignments will be posted to Google Classroom, with a school quarantine liaison available for students who need to isolate.  Other certified staff will also be available to help them.  Special Ed teachers and other shared staff will have to continue to sign in at school buildings in case contact tracing is necessary.
