CRT Update

ArushaTimes News

The JKCS CRT received a question regarding what would happen IF there was a case of COVID-19 or an exposure at our schools. The following is drawn directly from the BCCDC. These directives will guide the JKCS CRT and administration actions.
Staff and families of students will be contacted if public health believes they may have been exposed to COVID-19 at school, and provided with recommended follow-up steps (noted below).
Staff and students not exposed may or may not be notified if there is a positive COVID-19 case in a school. This is at the discretion of the school medical health officer.
Only public health can determine if a staff or student may have been exposed.
Public health will:
• notify anyone who may have been exposed.
• provide any follow-up steps like self-isolating or
monitoring for symptoms.
• work with school administration to decide if communications to the school community are needed.
