South Orangetown Central School District

COVID-19 Reporting

Timely reporting of COVID-19 cases will continue to be an important component of our District’s ability to reduce transmission risk.

Parents/guardians should keep children home if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever of 100.0 or higher, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.

Please note that students and staff who present with COVID-19 symptoms during the school day will be isolated and sent home within 30 minutes. A negative COVID test must be provided to the district before the individual returns to school.
