Michigan updates quarantine guidance for masked students


LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has issued updated guidance to help schools and local health departments navigate whether students exposed to a coronavirus-infected student should quarantine at home or stay in school.

Unvaccinated but masked students who were less than 3 feet from a COVID-positive student now can remain in school but only if they are tested daily for seven days after the exposure.

Such a student previously would have been told to isolate for 10 days or seven days with a negative test.

The recommendation is among many included for the first time in a school-specific document for the general public.
