Ingham ISD Updated COVID-19 Protocols for Families and Staff

While we would all like to put COVID-19 in our rearview mirrors, new COVID-19 cases are still being reported daily. We wanted to share with all families, what the current recommendations are from the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS), should your student test positive or be exposed to COVID-19.

For individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or presumed positive for COVID-19:

  • Individuals who test positive, should isolate at home for 5 days after onset of symptoms and return to school/work location if fever-free and symptoms have improved on day 6 AND wear a mask on days 6-10.
  • When you call in your absence, please let the school know that the absence is due to a positive COVID-19 test and the date they tested positive.
 DAY(S)  What to do regardless of vaccination status:
   0  Symptoms start or Test Positive with no symptoms
   1  Isolate at home
   2  Isolate at home
   3  Isolate at home
   4  Isolate at home

 Isolate at home

   6-10  Return to activities while masking if symptoms have improved


For individuals exposed to COVID-19:

  • If exposed in their household, they may continue school/work uninterrupted so long as they are symptom-free AND get tested 3-7 days following exposure or if symptoms develop.
  • If exposed at school or in the community, they may continue school/work uninterrupted so long as they are symptom-free AND monitor for symptoms (AND get tested if symptoms develop).
  • People who have known exposure should also wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from their last exposure regardless of vaccination status.

If symptoms start, please isolate, get tested, and notify anyone with potential exposure as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued efforts as we work together to provide the best educational experience possible for our students and families. As always, if you have questions, please contact your program administrator or email
