The Director of Bridgeport Department of Public Health, Lizette Earley RN, Nursing Supervisor and I work collaboratively when Bridgeport Public Schools is notified that a member of our school community has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). The affected person is immediately instructed to remain home in self-isolation for 10 days and is provided with additional instructions to follow prior to returning to school. Family members are also instructed to self-quarantine and get tested.
Anyone who is considered a “close contact” with this person will be notified to quarantine by school or local health officials and provided with appropriate steps to take. Staff and students exhibiting any symptoms, or feeling ill, should remain home and call their medical provider to report their symptoms and ask about testing prior to seeking in-person care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Additional information is available on our website. https://www.bridgeportedu.net/Page/16030
