Return to Health Meal Time Guidance


Risk level for COVID spread increases when face masks must be removed for eating. During mealtime, schools must take every measure to maximize physical distancing to limit close contact while face masks are removed. Any close contact exposure (within 6 feet for 15+ minutes) to COVID during unmasked activities, such as eating, do not qualify for modified quarantine. These types of close contacts are required to quarantine.
