Exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
  • If a student or staff member presents with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, the individual will be sent home and presumed to have COVID until such time as a healthcare provider determines the illness is caused by something else and provides a note.
  • Without a healthcare provider's note, the individual would need to stay home for 10 days and be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication. 
Contract Tracing
  • HSE Schools will immediately contact Fishers Health Department upon learning of a positive COVID case among student body or staff. The Indiana State Department of Health will lead contact tracing and case investigation in consultation with FHD. 
School Closure
  • Decisions on whether part of a school or an entire school will need to close will be made in consultation with the Fishers Health Department as part of the contact tracing and case investigation. These decisions will depend on how the students were cohorted and the movements of the ill individual. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), schools MAY need to close for two to five days, but the case investigation will ultimately determine the most appropriate actions.
