We report every positive case of COVID-19 to the Department of Health and Human Services, per RSA 141-C (http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/x/141-c/141-c-mrg.htm). When a cluster of COVID-19 cases develops at PCA, the DHHS will step in to help contact trace. A cluster is when three or more cases develop from a known positive case within the same core group with no likely connection to outside-of-school exposure. A core group is any cohort of people – a classroom, a team, etc.
You should be advised by a healthcare provider if you need to quarantine. The PCA School Nurse may notify you that you need to quarantine.
