If you had fever and 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and you have no other related symptoms, YES, you can return. For additional information please click on the link below.

A person with COVID-19 who has symptoms and was directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions: At least 10 days have passed since symptom onset and at least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and other symptoms have improved.

Yes, ONLY if you are experiencing symptoms. Close contact as defined by Center for Disease Control (CDC) is “Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.” For additional information please click on the link below.

The individual that tested positive must report their positive result to their immediate Supervisor or Instructor/Program Director and they must provide information on who they came in close contact with at the school.  Once we have this information, a notification gets sent out to those individuals via RAVE Alert or email.

No. The policy is to notify only those that were in close contact with the individual that tested positive. 

No.  You can submit a verbal or written request to your Supervisor/Program Director, but the decision is made based on a variety of factors and is not simply based on a personal desire to stay home.  This includes possible needs for accommodation of the employee and the decision will be based on an individualized assessment, the training requirements for students and customer needs for employees.

NOTE: We will continue to do our best to ensure the safety of everyone however, personal behaviors such as being out in the public without a mask is never a good decision.  WTC can only address what happens here, so please practice COVID-19 safety measures, i.e. wash your hands frequently, wear a mask when you are around other people and exercise safe distancing.
