Sheldrake COVID Policy – Subject to Change

Participants Who Test Positive

  • Fully Vaccinated Participants who test positive can return on Day 11 if asymptomatic. No shortening of isolation has been accepted by the Westchester County Department of Health (WDOH) to this date. (This policy may change depending on WDOH updates and we will update parents if/when this is the case)
  • Unvaccinated Participants who test positive are not eligible to come back early or test out of isolation. They can return on Day 11 if asymptomatic.

Participants Who are Direct Contacts of a Positive Individual

  • Fully Vaccinated Participants, who are asymptomatic, can return to the program after 5 days as long as they continue to be asymptomatic.
  • Unvaccinated Participants who are identified as direct contacts must quarantine until returning on Day 11.

For purposes of our policy, direct contacts include same household, same classroom, more than 20 minutes unmasked indoor exposure with a positive individual.
