Local COVID-19 Updates for the Gallatin R-V School District
When the Gallatin R-V School District receives notification and confirmation of a student or staff member testing positive for COVID-19 the following steps will be taken:
The district will begin the process to determine when the student/staff member became symptomatic and whether they were on school property while symptomatic;
If it is determined the student/staff member was not on school property within 48 hours before becoming symptomatic and has had no close contact with other students/staff members, communication will not be sent;
If it is determined the student/staff member was on school property within 48 hours before becoming symptomatic, the district will begin our contact tracing process to determine whether any other students or staff members may be identified as having close contact (within six feet for longer than 15 minutes) with the individual and notification will be sent to the staff and all families at the impacted school.
