Linn-Mar to Follow Iowa Department of Public Health Guidance

Effective January 27th, 2021, Linn-Mar Community Schools District will now follow the Iowa Department of Public┬áHealth “When to Quarantine” guidance.

In the graphic below, all the included scenarios explain that an individual is considered a close contact when they have been within 6 feet of the COVID-19 positive individual for 15 minutes. Although an individual may be deemed a close contact, if both the positive individual and the individual exposed were properly wearing masks, the close contact will self-monitor vs. quarantine.

Please note, if an individual is a close contact due to exposure to a household member who tests positive, that individual will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
