The following COVID guidelines apply to all SCTCC staff and children:


Children or staff with COVID-19 symptoms or who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate.  If children’s symptoms occur at SCTCC, they will be kept in a separate yard with a staff member until they are picked up by their parents.  


In order to return to SCTCC: 


      1.  Child or staff member must be symptom free for at least 24 hours,               and fever free for at least 48 hours (without the use of fever-                         reducing medications);




      2.   Child or staff member must provide a negative PCR (not rapid)                    COVID test, 


             a healthcare provider must provide documentation that the                         symptoms are typical of an underlying chronic condition (e.g.,                     allergies or asthma) 


             at least 10 days must have passed since symptom onset.




  • All children or staff who are exposed (less than six feet for longer than 15 minutes in a 24 hour period) to someone who is COVID-19 positive must quarantine for 10 days. 


  • We recommend testing 5-7 days from last exposure (but will not shorten 10-day exclusion if negative).


  • Asymptomatic close contacts must continue to self-monitor for symptoms through Day 14 from last known exposure.


  • Any onsite exposure may result in the closure of the Toddler Center until staff and children can safely return with the above guidelines.


  • (Unvaccinated) children travelling by air, or returning from travel out of the state/country must quarantine for 10 days, or 7 days if test negative 3-5 days after travel.
