2022 Updated Mask Policy


Dear School Community, 

We want to bring you up to date on several COVID-19 policy changes that happened over winter  break.  

On December 21, 2021, the Pima County Board of Supervisors adopted resolution 2021-87,  which mandates face coverings for all indoor spaces in which 6 feet of social distancing cannot  be maintained. You can read more about the face covering guidance at  

www.pima.gov/maskupPC

On December 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shortened the  quarantine and isolation periods for the general population. As a reminder, quarantine is for  people who have been exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, and isolation is for  

people who test positive for COVID-19. This new guidance also updates the definition of “fully  vaccinated." Below is an outline of these updates: 

If you test positive for COVID-19 (Isolate) -- applies to everyone, regardless of vaccination  status 

1. Stay home for 5 days. 

2. If you have no symptoms, or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave  your house. 

3. Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. 

4. If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves. 

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 (Quarantine) 

If you have been boosted OR completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within  the past six months OR completed the primary series of J&J vaccine within the past 2 months: 1. Wear a mask around others for 10 days. 

2. Test on day 5, if possible. 

3. If you develop symptoms, get a test and stay home. 

If you completed the primary series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine more than 6 months ago  and are not boosted OR completed the primary series of J&J over 2 months ago and are not  boosted OR are unvaccinated: 

1. Stay home for 5 days. After that continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional  days. 

2. Wear a mask around others for 10 days. 

3. Test on day 5 if possible. 

4. If you develop symptoms get a test and stay home.
