The Indiana Department of Health no longer recommends contact tracing and quarantining in schools. 

If an individual is symptomatic:

• A negative test or doctor's note is no longer required to return to school. As with other illnesses, students should not return to school unless they are fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication and their symptoms are resolving. 

 If an individual tests positive (regardless of vaccination status):

• Should stay home and isolate from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the date of the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic persons).

• People who are in isolation may return to school on Day 6 as long as fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications and symptoms have improved.
