In a letter to parents Wednesday, Chad Wyen, the district superintendent for Mad River, said students who test positive for COVID-19 will still need to be reported to the school and stay home for at least five days. Students may return to school six days after the positive test as long as they have no symptoms.
When the student returns to school, it is strongly recommended that the student wear a mask for at least five days, Wyen said.
Fairborn students and staff no longer be required to wear masks in the buildings beginning Tuesday, said Superintendent Gene Lolli. But he still recommended masking for kids and adults who haven’t been vaccinated. The district is off Friday and Monday.
“If the district has an outbreak in a particular class, grade level or building, we will initiate the use of face masks to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” Lolli said.
