When C.O.O.R. ISD staff receive notification of a positive case, they will notify the Health Department for the residence of the infected person, as well as the Roscommon County Health Department, and assist them with contact tracing.
The Health Department will identify close contacts and may order them to quarantine. A close contact means any individual who was within six feet of a COVID-19 infected person for at least 15 minutes over 24 hours starting from two days before illness onset, or two days prior to testing positive for those that are asymptomatic. Please see the CDC website to learn what you can do to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
As long as there are cases of COVID-19 in the community, there will be no way to prevent all risks of COVID-19 spread in schools. The goal is to keep the risk as low as possible and keep schools/school activities as safe as possible.

Child care survey - Help Me Grow
The State of Michigan has issued an Executive Order to provide child care for children aged birth to age 12 for Essential Workers in our communities in order to support essential services in response to COVID-19. "Help Me Grow" is serving as a common intake point for this effort for Essential Workers that are in need of child care during this time.
Essential workers are listed as health care workers, home health workers, direct care workers, emergency medical service providers, law enforcement personnel, sanitation workers, child care workers, personnel providing correctional services, postal workers, public health workers, key government employees, court personnel, and others providing critical infrastructure to Michiganders
Please fill out this intake at www.helpmegrow-mi.org/essential as soon as possible. Please complete the intake if you are unsure if you fall under "Essential Worker". Once your intake has been completed your information will be routed to someone in your community who can help you find care.
Additional information for parents:
To ensure essential child care services are safe, all disaster relief child care centers authorized under the order must perform a health evaluation of all individual who enters the facility each time they enter, and they must deny entry to those individuals who do not meet the evaluation criteria. Additionally, all child care providers must continue following the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.
