Per the Illinois Control of Communicable Diseases Code, Section 690.30, schools are still required to exclude COVID-19 cases and to quarantine close contacts as outlined in the IDPH & ISBE Joint Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in Schools. When schools (Pre-K to 12) identify 3 (or 10%) or more COVID-19 cases in a core group within a 14-day period, those cases must be reported to DCHD. Additional detail on these situations is included below.
