Data Collection: The Shrewsbury Public Schools, in collaboration with the Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA), is providing transparent reporting of positive cases of COVID-19 in our school communities. These cases include both students and staff (per CMRPHA, we have been asked not to specify between students and staff to maintain confidentiality). All cases are also reported to the MA Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE), which only publicly reports cases present in schools in the hybrid program within a 7-day period of the positive test (and not cases in the all-remote program); the DESE report is on a Thursday-Wednesday basis.
Positive Test Protocol: When the district is informed that an individual in the hybrid program has tested positive, school nurses coordinate contact tracing within the school community based upon public health criteria and share findings with CMRPHA officials to confirm whether any individuals are “close contacts.” An individual who tests positive must remain out of school for at least 10 days AND until 24 hours have passed after the last symptoms. A close contact must quarantine and remain out of school for 14 days, and is strongly encouraged to be tested.
