Health / COVID Plan & Updates

St. Patrick COVID Prevention Plan

The LLCHD has determined that for the protection of public health, all schools in Lancaster County shall require facial coverings of the mouth and nose in all indoor settings for all individuals over the age of 2.

Close Contact Exposure

  • A close contact exposure is defined as an unmasked positive individual being within 6 feet of another unmasked and unvaccinated individual for a cumulative time of 15 minutes within 24 hours.

An exposedstudent or staff member can return to the classroom:

  • Immediately if symptom free and properly wearing a mask at all times for 7-10 days depending on testing (K-8 only, student will eat lunch on their own)
  • After day 7 receiving a negative test result (test must occur on day 5 or later)
  • After day 10 without testing

COVID Vaccination Policy
The Diocese of Lincoln does not require anyone to receive the COVID vaccination. We understand this is a personal, medical decision. Nor does the diocese require anyone to disclose whether one has received a COVID vaccination.  As in the past, our plans are subject to change based on circumstances as they arise.
