Health Office/Isolation Space
MCS will have a Health Office and an Isolation Room to serve the school. The purpose of an established isolation room is to decrease transmission of COVID-19 by accommodating symptomatic students and staff. Students with any COVID-19 symptoms will be isolated as soon as possible based on the nurse’s assessment in the classroom. As the assessment warrants, students will be given a surgical mask and immediately escorted to the isolation room. Following an ill student or staff person being sent home, the student’s class will go outdoors. The surfaces in the classroom will then be sanitized by custodial or maintenance personnel. Students will return to the classroom when the cleaning is complete.
The school health office will serve as the school’s clean office space to accommodate medication administration, triage, health screenings, injuries, skilled nursing care and other nursing duties that do not involve potential or suspected infectious disease.
