Quarantine Guide for Unvaccinated People Exposed to COVID-19 in their Household
If you are unvaccinated and have been identified as a household contact to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, then you are at risk of developing COVID-19 in the 14 days after you were exposed, and you should follow these instructions. Household Contact: any individual who lives and sleeps in the same indoor shared space as another person diagnosed with COVID-19 (either a temporary or permanent living arrangement), leading to close contact and potential repeated exposure to the person with COVID-19. This includes situations where there may be temporary but prolonged exposure such as sleep-over events, shared camp cabins, vacation rentals, etc.  Here is a link that will take you to a more detailed description of this.
Self-Observation Guide for People Exposed to COVID-19 Who Are Not Required to Quarantine

If you are a household close contact** to someone with COVID-19 but you are fully vaccinated, you should also follow these instructions.  Here is a link that gives more details about this.

Student Vaccination
The NH Department of Public Health and CDC strongly encourages anyone age 12 and older to get vaccinated against the Covid 19 virus. By doing this it will help slow down the spread of it throughout our community. This has been copied off of the CDC website. The link will take you there where questions you have may be answered. Contact your primary care physician to get the vaccine. 

Vaccine Safety and Monitoring

  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. 
  • Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.
  • CDC recommends you get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can.
Parents are encouraged to send the school nurse a copy of their child's covid 19 immunization card. This will become part of the school health file. It can be faxed to the school at 863 - 0887, emailed to her at khelie@sau43.org or students can drop it off to Mrs. Helie at the beginning of the school year. If you have questions you can reach Mrs. Helie at 865-9632 after August 9th.
