Updates and clarifications to procedures
Central staff who visit campuses as part of their work duties can now visit more than one campus per day. Staff must follow safety guidelines at each campus and make sure that that they sign in and out at each campus to follow district procedures and in case the information is needed for contact tracing.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now defining “close contact” being within six feet of an infected individual for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. However, this does not change Dallas ISD procedures. The district has always used cumulative exposure to infected persons as part of its contact tracing procedures.
