With help from the Monroe County Health Department, your school will provide you with instructions. The health department will likely recommend that your school close the classroom for at least 24 hours.

Importantly, being in the same classroom does not necessarily mean your student was exposed to the virus, so you might not get a call from the contact tracing team.

However, if you're worried, you should discuss your concerns with your primary care physician.

If you have a question you'd like answered, send an email to GoodQuestion@whec.com.
