  • UPDATE ON HORRY COUNTY SCHOOLS PROCEDURES RELATED TO COVID-19 QUARANTINES, COVID-19 ISOLATIONS, AND DISTANCE LEARNING

    SEPTEMBER 3, 2021

    QUARANTINES - CLOSE CONTACT*

    The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) in its K-12 Schools Interim Guidance for Management of COVID-19 Cases, dated August 25, 2021, provides school districts with three choices for implementing quarantines of students or employees who have been exposed to COVID-19. While the recommended duration for a quarantine period is 14 days, based on local circumstances and resources, two options are available to reduce the duration of quarantine provided specific criteria are met.

    In an effort to increase our students’ access to face-to-face instruction, Horry County Schools will implement the two SCDHEC-approved options for quarantines of both students and employees who have been identified as a close contact of an individual with a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. Therefore, effective Tuesday, September 7th, the below guidelines will be followed when an individual is deemed a close contact of another individual who has received a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result:

    • Ten days of quarantine must be completed and no symptoms have been reported during daily at-home monitoring.

    OR

    • Seven days of quarantine must be completed, no symptoms have been reported during daily at-home monitoring, and the individual has received results of a negative antigen or PCR/molecular test that was taken no earlier than day five of quarantine. (According to SCDHEC, results of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests will not be accepted.)

      • Negative COVID-19 test results should be sent via email to negativeCOVID19testresults@horrycountyschools.net  or be submitted at the school.  A student may not report to class until 7 calendar days of quarantine have been completed and until the negative test result has been recorded by school staff.

    *Individuals who are fully vaccinated or who have received a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result from a healthcare provider in the last 90 days and who are not symptomatic do not have to quarantine.

    QUARANTINES - HOUSEHOLD CONTACT*

    In an effort to increase our students’ access to face-to-face instruction, Horry County Schools will implement the two SCDHEC-approved options for quarantines of both students and employees who have been identified as a household contact of an individual with a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. Therefore, effective Tuesday, September 7th, the below guidelines will be followed when an individual is deemed a household contact of another individual in the same household who has received a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result:

    • Twenty days of quarantine must be completed and no symptoms have been reported during daily at-home monitoring.

    OR

    • Seventeen days of quarantine must be completed, no symptoms have been reported during daily at-home monitoring, and the individual has received results of a negative antigen or PCR/molecular test that was taken no earlier than day fifteen of quarantine. (According to SCDHEC, results of over-the-counter COVID-19 tests will not be accepted.) 

    • Negative COVID-19 test results should be sent via email to negativeCOVID19testresults@horrycountyschools.net  or be submitted at the school.  A student may not report to class until 17 calendar days of quarantine have been completed and until the negative test result has been recorded by school staff.

    *Individuals who are fully vaccinated or who have received a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result from a healthcare provider in the last 90 days and who are not symptomatic do not have to quarantine.

    QUARANTINES - CURRENT STUDENTS IN QUARANTINE AS OF SEPTEMBER 3, 2021

    Any student who is currently on either a 14-day quarantine period (close contact) or a 24-day quarantine period (household contact) and who is not symptomatic should follow the appropriate procedure above for either close contact or household contact. 

    ISOLATION - POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULT

    Students and staff members who receive a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result must isolate for 10 days.  The student/staff members may return to school or work on the 11th day provided they are asymptomatic. There is no option to shorten isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test result.
