    • Masks must be worn on school buses/during school transportation
    • Hand washing/sanitizing should take place
    • Sanitize shared equipment as much as possible
    • Vaccinated students may avoid quarantine unless SJBHD says otherwise
    • If we have a positive within a program, communicate potential exposure home but allow SJBHD to follow up on quarantine procedures especially in the event of higher-risk exposures.
    • Opt-in serial testing will be offered through CDPHE.
    • Positive cases will need medical clearance from a PCP with exam to return
