SB)--Enid Public Schools Board members Monday night approved cutting in half the time students and staff should isolate if positive for COVID-19. Board members unanimously approved amending the district’s COVID procedures and recommendations, following recommendations from Oklahoma State Department of Health. EPS students and staff now should isolate for five days from a positive test and may return to class or work if asymptomatic and fever-free without medication for 24 hours. Individuals are then recommended, but not required, to wear a mask for five more days. If exposed to the virus, a person vaccinated and boosted against COVID is not recommended to quarantine; someone not fully vaccinated is recommended to do so for five days from exposure. Both should wear masks 10 days from exposure. EPS Superintendent Darrell Floyd said fewer hospitalizations and deaths seem to be reported with the latest COVID variant, which, according to OSDH, is more contagious but less severe among those who have received the full vaccine dosage. No EPS classes or campuses have been closed or gone to virtual learning due to COVID this school year. Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt praised the district for how it handled the previous school year while visiting Enid on Monday.
