COVID-19 Information

Effective July 26, 2022

On July 25, 2022, the Board of Education approved that GBAPS will no longer be contact tracing or quarantining and isolating students and staff for COVID-19 purposes. This aligns with Brown County Health, which is no longer contact tracing. 

It is the expectation of the District that the responsibility for testing and determining the need to quarantine and isolate in accordance with CDC guidelines is the responsibility of families and staff. 

It is the District’s expectation that:

  • If a student or staff member is symptomatic or feeling ill, they will stay home.
  • Students and staff who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms will either test at home or seek a COVID-19 test from a provider (see list for free tests).
  • Students and staff who test positive  for COVID-19 will stay home and isolate for days 1-5 of symptoms. 
  • Students and staff who return to school/work days 6-10 will wear a face covering. Note: the District will not require a negative COVID-19 test to return to work/school.
Face Coverings
The Board of Education also approved that face coverings for all students, staff, visitors and contractors shall be optional inside and outside all District buildings and premises.
  • The District will continue to provide face coverings at District schools/buildings.
  • No bullying or harassment of students or staff will be tolerated regarding the individual's decision whether or not to wear a face covering. 

Face coverings will be required in District buildings, premises and District provided transportation in accordance with state and federal requirements. Currently only Head Start buses and schools have a federal requirement for face coverings.

Criteria for Special Board Meeting to Revisit COVID-19 Protocols
At the July 25, 2022 Board of Education meeting, the Board voted to hold a special board meeting to determine if the District shall implement COVID-19 mitigation measures, including but not limited to face coverings, if one of the following conditions are met:

  • Brown County new COVID-19 hospital admissions per 100,000 population (7-day total) exceed 20 individuals,
  • OR the percent of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients (7-day average) is greater than 15%.
